Words I want to yell
in a holiday season that’s gone to h#@%
What’s there to celebrate
in a world gone mad
when every day brings word of one more sad?
before their life begins
warped people yelling that it’s because of a world full of sin.
I look for hope
from the kind ones I know
who hurt as much as I do, to see the world so.
I yearn to celebrate
a time of peace and joy
not just an excuse to buy another toy.
Instead I find myself
In search of a sign
that there is love in the world, and it is benign.
