They Know Not Of Christmas - Poem by Anele TheAfrikanSon kaMthethungqongqo Potelwa

How do you laugh with joy?
When out there
Is young hopeless child
No presents unto 'him'
No gifts bought for 'her'

How do you rejoice?
The day of saddness
From a young innocent body
With no life
with no love family love in provision

Tell me
How do you enjoy
The company of Santa
When out the is a homeless kid
With just a bunch of strangers
Passing by her

'He' can not even talk about Christmas
Because 'her' loneliness
Speaks of too much emptness
That shed so much tears

He is warm in the inside
She might have sinned
But she is a women
He is a man
And the are humans like us
But its cold ouside

Its even more cold
In the inside
During the joys Christmas
During the family gatherings
