Christmas is Not a Time of Peace


Christmas is not a time for peace,

But a time for waging war,

There are homeless in the trenches,

Amid the blood and gore,

So go where you’ve never been,

Let your kindness roar,

Who will heed the cries for help,

From the meek and mild?

Who will force the abusers away,

From the defenseless child?

Go where you’ve never been,

Let your conscience run wild,

Christmas is not a time for peace,

But a time to speak out,

Against laxity, oppression, discrimination,

And without any doubt,

Against poverty, waste, disease, and crime,

The four horsemen of death,

This day should be a day to battle,

Until the last fleeting breath,

Do what you’ve never done,

Until the battle’s won,

Let the battle cries ring loud and true,

As we stamp out fear,

We can make this the most special time,

To wipe away the tears,

Do more than you’ve ever done,

To bring some Christmas cheer,

What if you and I could change history,

By doing what we can,

What if we changed the lives of a few,

And created a peaceful strand,

We could do more than we’ve ever done,

To make this the promised land,

 Christmas could be a time of joy,

Because we did so much more,

Dreams of peace could take root and grow,

Instead of dreams of war.

    1. Just trying to remind people to think of others during this time, like the original St. Nicholaus did. Better to give than receive.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  1. Spreading love against hate, oppression, and poverty is definitely the worldly attitude that the message of Christmas should carry rather than buying store bought garbage that does more harm than anything else(debt,stress,fills up landfills). It is ridiculous… the amount we waste when it could be pointed toward better causes.

    1. You’d think people would be getting smarter rather than becoming more egocentric.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
