Religion(9) (Once-A-Year X'Mas Christian) - Poem by U Win Kyi

Last year I attended a mid-night mass
with my feeling very hurt.
Standing at the door of cathedral
daring not to enter,
I was a once-a-year visitor
and a long-lost sinner.
No excuse of being so busy
I was actually so lazy.
For church-going I always hesitated
for I had a weak faith.
I asked forgiveness in fear.
My eyes filled with tear.
Contrition in my heart..so sincere.
I felt I was welcomed with an open arm.
My heart warmly burned.
I felt I was given a special gift
by my Lord, all sins to forgive.
I have become a new man since then,
no more an once-in -a-year Christmas christian.
