To spread compassion, here’s the season
Emancipate humans from hate’s prison
For cheering every human, offer a reason
Oh Lord and Father, give strength to your son!

Thirty silvers cannot betray me

Dog-bone whip does not deter me

Crown of thorns is garland to me

Spear in the gut only emboldens me.

 

What is life without kindness and love?

Choose between the eagle and the dove.

Stand up for poor when push comes to shove

Have compassion for humanity, by Jove.

 

Cut across all religious jingoism

Embrace kindness and humanitarianism

Humanity is catapulting towards cataclysm

Let a rainbow stream out of life’s prism.

 

Humans trapped in insurmountable obstacle

Caught up inextricably in hate’s tentacle

Was my blood in vain through atrium and ventricle?

Oh Lord, guide me in these times impossible.

 

To spread compassion, here’s the season

Emancipate humans from hate’s prison

For cheering every human, offer a reason

Oh Lord and Father, give strength to your son!

Awesome! I hope to get back on Booksie.com shortly. But for now I can no longer read or write at work!

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Joseph. Thanks for liking. Pssst...I wrote this on demand from a daughter of mine. Glad it came out well. In recent times I have posted several poems and a couple of short stories on booksie. Please read and review them when you have time. I value your opinion. Can't wait to see you active on booksie. Thanks.
