Ants In The Cookies (Fake Friends and Toxic Relationships) – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I took out my ipad from my bag, took a cupcake bite and did a snapshot of the leftover cookies on the other table left by a stranger.

The cafe attendant perhaps amused by my action approached me and said “Sir you can take a photo of our desserts in the counter for your food blog. ”

I declined and thanked her. I don’t want to offend her feelings. It’s not their products that warrant my ipad lens but those small insects that polarize on those helpless cookies that are really getting my attention.

How in the world can ants suddenly appear in split seconds after the little girl left her cookie?

How fast and smart. They can sense an opportunity a mile away. No different from humans who in a snap of a finger will cling to you acting like a loyal patron and be gone like a total stranger when they find you useless.

They stick with you like ants because you smell so sweet and leave you a bitter taste in the mouth after they’re done with their mission. Just like those fair-weathered friends who are not really fair or should i say not really your friends.

So you look at those ants until they’re gone, inching their way back to their colony serving their queen as you finish your choco float, wipe your lips and keep your remaining cookies.

A spill over on your drinks might tempt them to go back to your table but you don’t really mind this time.

It’s not their fault if you’re careless. You can’t blame them when you left your cookie jar open.

They will always be who they are. Changing colors like a chameleon is their true nature. You can’t really blame them.

After all, ants and humans belong to the same animal kingdom.

It will never be a long walk if someone is holding your hand – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

A beautiful scene i captured in Quebec City not too long ago inspired me to create a poetry.  Hand in hand i remember someone who’s there to lend a hand.

It Will Never Be A Long Walk If Someone Is Holding Your Hand

A child to make you stay
A lover who holds you long
Friends and Family who treasures you all along

Whoever, whatever it is
Truly,  it will never be a long walk
if someone is holding your hand.
