Even though at this time of year it is supposed
to be a time forpeace and goodwill with happiness
and goodcheer is that really
something we see clear.
People may do their best to forget the troubled
times with their pain and distress,
to join in the festive fun and enjoy the
Should it be just once a year that we
make a special time to share with
our loved ones so dear.
Ofcourse we can do this through-out the year
make it a time to get together and build
on our relationships with others as we
strenghthen the bonds with sisters,Fathers
Brothers and our Mothers.
December 25th is not the birth of Christ it
is just a Mere Myth so why people
celebrate this certain date is something
for others to think and contemplate.
Times are increasingly more difficult and
understandingly we want to enjoy ourselves
only natrual but this season seems to give
people an excuse in which they reason
to over-eat, and drink to excess to
drown their sorrows they express
as the Special day ends their lives return
back to normal tomorrow.
It can be a lonely time for many in this
December month as some are alone
during this holiday and that can be
sad for some while it seems the rest of the world
are having a goodtime and lots of fun.
There are many through-out the world who
are still suffering from lack of food and sanitation
no water which causes severe de-hydration don't
you think it is only right to spare a thought for such
ones going through a terrible time of starvation it kills
slowly and affects many atribe and nation.
Thousands may donate to these ones to give hope
they can revive many in order to help them
survive, but many loose their battle as it is
too great to cure as so many struggle to
endure the distress of hunger pangs .
The moral of this poem is to encourage people
to think of the world and not just for a split second then
blink. Take time to count your blessings and be
thankful for what we have and also about the peace
and security we wish to possess in the world will
we really see a world full of peace well
in the Bible it gives us a promise and hope
that soon God is going to take action and intervene
in human affairs and this will be our release, to prove to us that he deeply
and truly cares and that is a promise bestowed
to us beyond comapare.
It gives much comfortto know there is a brighter
future for all who wish to take
lifes water free God will do this
a promise we will soon see.
