About This Poem

Missing Christ

I choose to celebrate the Savior's Birth.
A day of happiness, a day of worth.
I sometimes worry, it will disappear.
Christianity, is not welcome here.

I know my faith is not the only one.
When it's mentioned conversation is done.
We are just talking why is there such fear.
Christianity is not welcome here.

There was a time, when at school we could pray.
A distant memory from yesterday.
Christ has been removed, from holiday cheer.
Christianity is not welcome here.

I think you should celebrate in your way.
Everyone should have there own special day.
When I'm restricted, it brings on a tear.
Christianity is not welcome here.

    Perfectly said Richard, it seems that freedom of religion has morphed into freedom to condemn Christians and that is as sad as excluding a minority religion. We must find a happy medium where we can all celebrate each other.

    Your constitution was written by Christian men to protect Christianity. I think that they would be devastated to see that it is now the main tool used to snatch Christianity away.

    It is very sad that Christ has been taken out of Christmas in so many places. Congratulations on your win Richard and I am proud to share a placement with you. Thank you for your kind comments . Love, Joyce

    every culture and country celebrates it differently and by all means, the ORIGINAL intent of it should never be looked down on or restricted. I love your kyrielle, and a big congrats for your win.

    I see what you mean. I saw a sign that said "Keep Christ in Christmas" and I wondered if that was really possible. For many people, Christ and Christmas have nothing to do with each other. I am thankful though, that we live in a country where we can celebrate whatever and however we choose. I think it is important that everyone that agrees with this poem does something to share the good news of Christ's birth instead of being so gloomy. Otherwise they are only making our situation worse.

    Thanks, I am not expecting to be chosen this time. Not a lights and delights kind of poem but I felt it was important to write.

    Richard; I do like it. It is so sad that a handfull of people can have the power to change things. I myself am a true beliver of Christ. Thanks for sharing this with us. Lucilla

    I have that problem also especially when it comes to discussing Dec.21st. I can't even get christians to discuss it.

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 12/14/2012 11:22:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    You have my curiosity, what is the significance of Dec 21st???
  1. Date: 12/14/2012 7:03:00 AM

    Rick, this is a wonderful poem, I so enjoyed reading it, I like this form Kyreille very much, I must give it a try and best of luck in the contest. Constance

    oh, and that was interesting what you told me about salvation army!!

  1. Date: 12/13/2012 10:44:00 PM

    It's really too bad that people cannot respect how others choose to celebrate their holidays and if we want to say Merry Christmas, we should just say it!! Good one, Richard.

    Hi Richard, what a great write, and, sadly, so true. I agree with you 100% about what has evolved over time. Rollo

    wow, why so dark? though the fact Christianity not welcomed explicitly but I positively believed that Christ is in every heart who missed him in deep, and I positively believed people still have their own Christianity through their own way :) - Hug, Yanny PS: Still brainstorming and be prepare for entering your magical contest :D

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 12/13/2012 9:36:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Hi Yanny, not my intention to be dark, our society used to embrace our Christian heritage, it seems as time goes on it is no longer Merry Christmas but rather Happy Holidays. I have no desire to have people of other faiths change how they celebrate their Holidays, I am sad to see our holiday being eroded for the purpose of political correctness.
