Christmas Poem- The Differance - Poem by James Tipp

Does it make a difference
If once a year the world stops, listens
To a message of peace?
Does it matter if we stop telling the story,
Of shepherds and stables and roomless inns?
Does it matter if the star is put out, packed away
And the angels cease to sing ‘Noel’?

Will it make a difference to my life
If tomorrow the shops remove the glitter?
That tales of Father Christmas, St Nicolas,
And all the present givers are no more.
Will it make a difference if the ‘after shave’
Pair of socks, and my new ‘Game Boy’ are never bought
Will it make a difference if there’s no party?

Will there be a difference in the world
If we remove the ‘Love of neighbour’
That came in the darkened starlit night
To a stable in a far off place?
Will there be a difference
If there is nobody to love me
As I am, warts and all?

The Christ child came to make a difference
To send the ripples of His birth
Through the passages of time.
That all life matters, creation is important,
Life has value and meaning, you have value.
That His birth gives hope to a darkened world
That God cares and still offers another way.
