Post No. 96: Do They Still Remember What’s Christmas?

What follows below is a short poem that I wrote for Christmas 2 years ago. Well, I just thought that I would recycle it and post it up here since it seems to me that the theme of the poem still remains relevant & appropriate...

Do They Still Remember What’s Christmas?

This Christmas
The streets are once again filled
With people throbbing in & out of shopping malls

I wonder
How many of these people
Still remember the meaning of Christmas

I wonder
How many still remember that Christmas
Means more than mere merry-making & exchanging of gifts

Have Christmas become so commercialised
That people forget to think about the less fortunate
While losing themselves amidst Christmas sales & pretty lighting

Do we
Still remember
The meaning of Christmas


I almost forgot... Here's wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!
