Finding Hope this Christmas

Finding Hope this Christmas

by: Yasir Sulaiman

Rumbled through the snow I did,
In search of food; my intentions were no good….
Had to protect my family,
But no treasure anywhere I could see….
Growl and force my way I did
Break into a home I did
Grab I everything I could see,
Then, my eyes fell on the Christmas tree….

Full of joy, full of lights,
Celebrating the birth of a special hope on a special day like this…
Then a hand was placed on my shoulder and “She” said,
Feeling hungry my friend?

I stared at her in surprise!
Destroying everything in sight here I was….
Yet greet me she did full of smiles,
And then share with me she did a lot of gifts,

I realized today is a day of forgiving,
Today is a day of sharing
Today is a day you forgot all your worries…
Because today is Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody!

I think it sounds good In theory anyway… Read more »
