The true meaning of CHRISTMAS .


Christmas is here now....

The rains have taken over in our midst

And everyone is joyous in this beautiful time of the year

It's that time when even the stingy are generous

The rich slumber in their prosperity and splurge

The needy continue begging for alms

It is a joyous time for all, but do all slumber in?


During this time we are meant to show genorosity

To show mercy and sympathy...

To spread love and peace all over..

To spread the beautiful word...

To be united and to live in harmony


Instead, selfishness takes over

We forget what this festivity is about

Or for whom...

Instead we choose materials and follow a deadly path

And in this spirit..

The true meaning of this spectacular festivity is forgotten.

Your point is well made, your desire divine;
Reminding the masses about Christmas design!
I like what you’re saying, so don’t get me wrong~
The best way for preaching’s to LIVE in the song
We can’t change the world, unless one at a time...
But one helping one, can repeat to a rhyme!
“Pay it forward” He said, with an effort unmatched:
That’s how Christmas started, & Easter was hatched!

Greediness is a horrible thing, and sadly the rich are not able to see or care, that they have the power to change someone's life, or at least day. It is easier for them not to bother helping. Great poem. I am glad you are bringin people's attention to this.

This encapsulates exactly how I feel every year, and it only grows. It’s difficult living with so little, but it’s also those with little who give the most, but the most of what matters. What I’m trying to say is, this is beautifully written.

A Christmas rain is an interesting thought. I suppose the spirit of the season is very much a rain that washes away the Ebeneezer Scrooge traits in the average man. Of course, there are those whom are too stubborn to give in to the spirit of Christmas cheer. Wonderful imagery!
