I was planning to do a Christmas books post but then I thought that you guys may not have time to consider my suggestions since Christmas is 4 days away.
I wrote another poem a week ago!
SO I thought that would be more fitting to share than books you’ll need to read in 4 days!
Here we go
Oh, and it doesn’t really have a title!
Slather on complacency and wide smiles
To silently suffer
A time of push and pull
We want snow
It glistens and makes a blanket
It makes my car a bore at 5 a.m.
My tires become stubborn mules
The gifts have to be wrapped
Chances are they’ll hate it
But I love to see the happy
Face of him not expecting that perfect gift
Of course that perfect gift took 3 weekends to find
But his smile is worth it…right?
We see the family who is just as distant as a stranger
Awkward situations passed around
Like the good food at the tables
Your conversations topics disappear
Like the cornbread and the ham
20 years into a century
The stress of the season doesn’t shift until
You become glad to see snow because
The yard is 30ft away from your office
Gift shopping makes you yearn for connection
Everyone is distant now
Past frustration is now empathy
Merry Christmas everybody
Because you finally recognized
Snow, gifts, and family
Are not the holiday
God forbid even the church
Should be on the list
Of what equals Christmas
Even a conglomerate
The love we give makes the season merry
The baby born makes the holiday Christmas
Yes, simply that
May your home and holiday be filled with the reminder of hope everlasting from our Savior!
