Wishing..a merry christmas to one and all.


Christmas is over...


replaced by advertising execs


who just want your cc's and cheques?


There's no santa


without a clause..ie hand over your money


it will open "Lapland's" doors.


 


The poor are pushed aside


the depressed commit suicide


Another soul in the news today


threw themselves under a train


and died


At Covent garden station


but the commuters could not stop


except to mutter


"oh not again"


not much thought for his anguish or  pain


just more "delays" till they clear


what remained


 


And yet it rains


another day


let us pray


 


maybe i'm wrong


as the carol singers


pull out a song


the homeless are offered shelter


for just one holy night


but those that refuse lie


like refuge that line London's streets


once proud..a pitiful sight


 


And yet the city glimmers


and glitters for all that are well


the mentally ill cannot see past


the darkness


their mere existence is hell


 


And the children and pets


that are abused


As Big Ben chimes merrilly


bringing on the christmas cheer


some are left battered and emotionally torn


cringing in fear


as people, neighbours, pretend they can't hear


I remember a time when people did care


more openly


and communities lived in harmony


The chrismas ghosts of christmas past


flicker as i am reminded of my own childhood


or maybe i was wrapped in cotton wool


and sheltered from the world and it's harsh reality


how can i enjoy christmas when the world is sick catastrophically?


each to their own


but spare a thought for those


who are alone


with no one to fend for them or care


starvation and hunger


whilst politicians continue their banter


for votes and hamper real progress


with their hidden agenda


"me first" the rest of the world later


it's not too late


for amnesty and peace


Christ was born


and died as sacrifice


he cried real tears of blood


So let's spare a thought


And remember christmas


for it's true worth


give thanks and praise


for all men living


and peace for our fragile earth.

A great message in this poem!
We need to get more Biblically correct!
Are we not tired of hearing all the political lies.
Who can we belive in?
There is only one way and it is to look up on high.
The Bible gives us hope for all.
The politicians change with the wind and
their message is so hollow..
While our God in Heaven gives us eternal life.
God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow!

Merry Christmas!

That is why I cannot feel the so-called "magic" of Christmas. That "magic" ought to be there all year long. Thank you for this, Andrea. Blessings to you,

Andrea this is so powerful and yes Christmas is over from the government and big media stores to the signing off Christmas as the official name of this Holy Holiday to The Homelss being attached and left hopeless in Las Vegas and around the country. Man does not do WHAT JESUS WOULD DO.
Thank you for sharing this piece.
Have a blessed Christmas in Jesus name.
Always pray for those that have not yet received the eternal gift of life.

The other side of Christmas...let us hope and pray for the many who are lost and have been left alone...that Christmas will be more than sadness and loneliness...


nice work on bringing this view forward...
