How long does the peaceful message of Christmas act in our lives?


She went to church on Christmas Eve
to worship the newborn king
then home to open all her gifts
and enjoy her pile of new bling.
While she sang some Christmas songs
she went down to the store
to exchange some of her presents
in a place that looked like war.
The Prince of Peace of which she sang
was no where to be found
in all of the surroundings
with noises very loud.
She shouted at the shoppers
who crowded into line
and she wasn’t like the angels
as she let her anger shine.
Peace on earth she had just sung
from the bottom of her heart
but there wasn’t much peace with her
or near her shopping cart.
As she drove home to get some rest
another driver cut her off
and she would have shouted angry words
if she hadn’t had to cough.
She’ll try again next Christmas
to get the peace on earth to last
instead of watching it vanish
at a speed so very fast.

The Climbing Boy by Mark Lichterman

Once optioned for a movie, now on Kindle also, "The Climbing Boy" is a magical Christmas tale that deserves to become a new Dickens like classic. The Climbing Boy can now..
