Merry Christmas!


Christmas

Winter is here with ice and snow.
Some poor souls have nowhere to go.
Some are hungry, no food to eat,
some have shelter without heat.
Yet, Christmas comes.

Wars continue in political strafe.
Terrorism thrives; no one is safe.
Weapons abound, from gun to bomb.
Chaos reigns with tenuous calm.
Still, Christmas comes.

Violence prevails in film and TV,
firmly rooted in reality.
Many suffer neglect or abuse;
explosive incidents one can’t diffuse.
But, Christmas comes. 

Faith and hope go hand in hand,
no matter culture, religion, or land.
Whatever the crisis or situation,
peace is the answer to liberation. 
So, Christmas comes.
