All I Want For Christmas - Poem by Karabo Ntjana

I don't want nice clothes for Christmas.
Although I'd appreciate if I got some.
I don't want nice shoes for Christmas.
Some people out there don't even have some.
I don't want nice jewels this Christmas.
I've never had those anyways.
Although I'd appreciate them.
That's not my wish this Christmas.
.
I used to cry for Christmas clothes.
And ice creams because its Christmas.
I used to seek candy every day.
Just because it's December.
I used to... But not this time.
.
Does Santa exist?
How come I've never seen one.
Can you be my Santa this year?
I promise I won't demand much.
All I want for Christmas;
Is something I never had to experience;
Most of this year.
.
2018 has been a tough ride for most.
Many had a chance to spot out the fake.
And make a change.
Hard work all days not a chance to rest.
Teenagers broken and families torn apart.
Dear Santa;
All I want for Christmas is reunion.
.
Reunite our thoughts and pieces.
Reunite families, this Christmas.
Reunite friends and loved ones.
Reunite nations in one peace.
.
Rolling down the streets holding hands.
Smelling nice, perfume on fire, love in the air.
Laughing and chanting because all are happy
Dear Santa;
All I want for Christmas is happiness.
.
Many are living in sorrow.
Without even diner to eat on Christmas.
One member there and the other there.
Stressful minds on Christmas.
Oh Santa;
All I want for Christmas,
Is happiness for all.
.
Dear Santa.
Do you exist?
Please stop having favorites.
Stop handing out gifts to the rich; leaving the poor.
Let's go to the streets of poor communities.
And make them have a pleasant Christmas;
Just this once.
If Santa doesn't exist;
Oh dear poets, can we be their Santa?
.
Homeless children.
Watching families walk down the streets in pure happiness.
Asking themselves; where's mine?
Can we be their Santa?
Can we spread out love and joy?
Without favorites but to all?
Can we be their Santa?
All I want for Christmas;
Is for all to be loved.
.
All I want for Christmas is reunion.
All I want for Christmas is happiness.
Make a soul happy.
Be ones Santa this Christmas.
That's all I want for Christmas.
Is it too much to ask?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Christmas day is just around the corner. Many seek gifts which fade in a matter of time. This Christmas, make someone happy! This Christmas, show someone love. There are many children out there who never got to experience how receiving a gift on Christmas feels like. Be their Santa this Christmas; just this once.
