Is This Our Mistake? - Poem by David Darbyshire

Frost on the ground,
cold mist in the air.
It's not long to Christmas,
does anyone really care?

I know the children do,
they just can't wait.
So what about you? ,
should we have a debate?

Let's talk about all the kid's,
that do not get a break.
No Love, No presents,
is this our mistake?

What about all the Homeless,
people living under a bridge.
These do not have Love or Food,
they just can't walk to the fridge.

Well it's not much of a debate,
but I am sure you can all relate.
If you didn't get any presents at Christmas,
who would you Love? , or who would you Hate?

    Maybe I just missed you, but I am so pleased to see you posting again, and bringing this necessary and often overlooked thought. Open up the debate, sweetheart - it needs to be so. And eloquently, as yours here. t x (Report)Reply
