Hey guys it’s almost Christmas and I wanted this post to reflect a little about this most special time of the year. I was going to post a copy of a Christmas poem that I wrote on Helium but then I remembered that I did that last year. As there was no point in posting it again I though it best to write another Christmas poem, one that I hope will strike a chord with some of my readers.
Yeah, I know some of you guys aren’t into poetry but I figure there’s no reason why you shouldn’t attempt to broaden your horizons a little every once in awhile. I know how Christmas can mean different things to different people and so it would be pointless for me to try and fulfill all those individual needs with this one poem, so I thought it best to portray a little of what it means to me.
Christmas comes but once a year
And to many one thing is very clear
For many it’s all about the shopping spree
Or even decorating the Christmas tree
The Christmas lights many a house adorn
Whilst a few Scrooges walk by looking forlorn
But there is more to Christmas than meets the eye
A lot more than just eating some fruit mince pie
It’s a story about a child born in a manger
Born there because his parents fled the danger
For King Herod made the decree all baby boys to die
Scared was he that the birth of Jesus meant his time was nigh
It’s a story of the love of our Father
For He Loved us so much that he’d rather
Sacrifice his Son so that all who believed
The real reason why Jesus was conceived
For He is our Savior and our teacher too
For he taught us all that we must do
To be as He was while on this Earth
For we must follow him for all we are worth
The path may not be easy that is true
But better the hardships than hell to queue
The rewards are great and so we strive
To reach the end to be truly alive
So this Christmas when loved ones are near
Remember the true reason for the Christmas cheer
It’s that we all get together to celebrate
That love is so much more important than hate
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you all have a great time and that it’s a special one for each and every one of you.
