Christmas... Is it over yet

The night before Christmas,

and solemn as an owl, I settled

perched up in bed writing

this poem.

For what, you may ask?

I do not know, but I felt

a need to release these

thoughts, to let my world


I’m not brightly lit as the

Christmas lights are, I’m not

even jolly like a fake Santa


I am, however, sad and distant

tonight, looking out my window

staring disheartened at the


Fa la la las are not singing in

my ears, and I’m quite tired of the

stories of the red-nosed reindeer.


I’m not exactly scrooge, but I’m not

exactly not; I think I feel more like

a misfit in the land of

the lost.

Don’t worry though, I know

my place, and I will smile

through it all for my children's


My days seem to be this way

no matter what I do. Christmas

has just become another day

that looms.

The truth is most days I’ve lost

my way of trying to fit in. I

am tired of not being me in this

world of pretend.

Right now, I know as you

are reading this rhyme, shock

of my words has stretched

your eyes.


It’s really alright that you feel

this way. I know I seem selfish

on Jesus’s day.

However, I can tell you one

thing I believe, Jesus knows me

well, and he knows my truth. I

do not speak these words

to be untrue.

Instead, I choose to share

my thoughts of life as I live

it; I am sad. I am lonely, so

be it.

If anyone is worried of

my doom; don’t. I am

sure he approves of my

straight- forward fortitude.

You see; I believe in him with

all my heart, and he knows I

wish him well on his day of birth.

Without all the hoopla surrounding

his day, all I really want is to wish

him a happy birthday!

I love you, Jesus!

Do you think my Christmas poem is too depressing?
