THE DELUSIONAL ONE?
Can I controversially be the delusional one...
when that universal peace,
confidently spoken by Jesus,
is easily reachable by different means;
ponder over those words:
that even an unrealistic one
doesn't find hard to imagine:
what's to come...if love ruled again!
Only at Christmastime that dream is realized,
and isn't it very selfish to be kind only once,
not any other day...to really prove one's devotion?
I see kindness in giving a present to someone,
and selfishness in expecting one;
it's the worst habit we are accustomed to these days,
when we're low on money and frustration wins!
I appreciate the sweet sound of the kindest word,
the gentle pat on the shoulder,
the shaking of hands and the warmest hug;
an affectionate kiss to demonstrate love:
who wouldn't desire these things and fondly care?
Can I accidentally be the delusional one
with an invaluable secret to share....
when others contradict faith for personal gain
and willfully favor customs steeped in paganism;
and all they do doesn't deviate from altruism?
Meekness is gone from this race,
everyone rather live among the rich, not the poor;
amid the riches that they accumulate...
they won't hear the sermon preached by Jesus:
they invoke their Muse, not the One who save their soul!
Now, all know the absurd truth about Christmas...
not to let preoccupation interfere with their celebration;
It's nice to receive, even better to give and absorbing an odd notion,
at this time, makes joy absolutely worthless...
and its not easily understood how the absent spirit accedes,
forgetting to properly honor the absolute Ruler of the Universe!
