True Joy of Christmas

Red and green galore
everywhere we see
the hustle and bustle
of the city up roared

Christmas is coming
everyone is rushing
to buy and spend
to their hearts 'content'

Having to need
to get that special gift
that no one needs
or even the spirit uplift

Drowned in the music
Blinded by lights
Engulfed in the 'spirit'
and candy delights

Everyone is drunk
off fake holiday meaning
stressing over silly things
that they might bring

It's hard to see the truth
through the light
The Son through the strife
this Christmas will bring

People hating
because of people stressing
put down those 'gifts'
come closer and listen

It's not about things
not about trees
not about lights
or even the sites

Forget the presents
Filling the stockings
making everyone happy
or even the cooking

Drop what you're doing
come over and listen
this Christmas should be different
a little more peaceful

My King was born
to us this day
that he might save
all that have strayed

This is His birthday
we celebrate
in remembrance
of what God gave.

His one and only
Jesus Christ
Prince of Peace

He's the reason we
have a Christmas
the beautiful sounds
wonderful lights

A gift for the remembrance
of the gift God gave
His son Jesus Christ
who rose from the grave.

Residing in Heaven
protecting His children
calling everyone
to His embrace.

Calling everyone Home.

So when we celebrate Christmas
don't be stressed over the things
that no one needs
remember the joy that Christmas should bring.

The joy of Jesus, our King.

  I can totally agree with your sentiments. For the most part, the real meaning of Christmas seems to have been lost amongst the masses. More irksome, is the fact that people won't even say Merry Christmas but will spend an almighty buck on a Happy Holiday.
