Christmas - Poem by Efren Petalver Carranza
The time of each year to learn from the past and change for the future;
To forgive those who’ve done wrong and reconcile each one’s mistakes;
For there’s another place to go on living without hatred and fear;
And there we find the glory of God for us who believes in Him;
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, ”
Is the symbol of Christmas – a God’s gift to our repentance we must,
Let us not be misled by those who are confused,
But guide them with our hands and lead them to His plan;
Let us not fall, together! We must fight
The deceitful nature of all human races,
‘Cause it hard sometimes to choose from what is right
And wrong “to do what we don’t want them to do to us, ”
“God is love and love is God; ” so, we must think twice
That hate is crime in His eyes.
Listen to the voice of others and open our arms of embrace,
Widened our knowledge greater to understand their outcries,
Respect those who are different and help the helpless innocent,
For we are all children of God regardless of who we are, indeed!
What will another day may bring if we don’t believe and seek the truth?
That’s why Christmas comes each year – a reminder to us of His day-end;
So, before it’s too late, let’s strengthened the power of our faith,
For there’s always a reward to anyone – the true meaning of Christmas:
Christmas isn’t all about the presents under the Christmas tree,
The street lanterns and the carols we hear and sing,
But blessed the recipients, the givers who celebrate
“The birth of Christ, who humbled Himself to save our sins.”
