It’s Christmas Time – think!

19 Dec

This poem was written by my 10 year-old son for school and I love it. While so many want to close their curtains and shut the world out of their enjoyment of Christmas, our children can teach us much about thinking about and doing what we can to help others. I think his line ‘Little kids know half what we know’ is interesting because it shows the faith that children place in adults to put the world to rights. Are we doing enough? Think!

THINK
THE LIGHTS ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE SHINING AND GLIMMERING
THINK
A LITTLE GIRL COLD AND SHIVERING

HOUSES EVERYWHERE ALL DECORATED
THINK
A LITTLE BOY BEING HUMILIATED

LOTS OF FAMILIES HAPPY AND JOYFUL
THINK
A HOMELESS FAMILY SAD AND TEARFUL

CHILDREN PLAYING IN THE SNOW
THINK
LITTLE KIDS KNOW HALF WHAT WE KNOW
THINK…
THINK…
