Old Poem I wrote

Christmas Terror

Terror alert set to high
No kidding!
Christmas brings terror to many.
Don't need the gubment to point that out.

Unrealistic expectations fed by media
Strike terror into the hearts of many.
Families torn apart by grief and hard feelings
With fake smiles over a dinner.

People with no hope of another Christmas
Striving to pack it all into one day.
People who spend Christmas alone
Fighting off overwhelming feelings of isolation.

The divine birth did not come to strike terror
But to shine a bright light
That all could see
And gather us all together like chicks to a mother hen.

I'll publish more of my old xmas poems soon.
