After Christmas Blues


~1 min read


Walking through town in the dead of the night
See the buildings rise to such a great height
Where does it get us, all the toil and strife
What is the world we’ve bought?
Peace and joy - or for naught?

Day after Christmas overflows with toys
Cell phones, TVs, Legos and lots of noise
Through the chaos, what is missing is joy
Not just something to do,
but something deep and true

We feed the beast to put smiles on faces
What they need is to learn to be gracious
Instead they burn as they run rat races
Better to give than get
May have some wisdom yet

What’s the answer, I can’t pretend to know
But what I’m seeing ain’t a pretty show
Hoping and praying that they learn and grow
But what are we teaching?
And who are we reaching?
