Melancholic thoughts fill Christmas,
each and every passing year.
Carols play in every business,
attempting to provoke cheers.
Part of me feels so excited,
witnessing the twinkling lights,
other pieces feel divided,
witnessing greed in plain sight.
Search inside to find the answers
that can ease this holiday,
see all smiles as true enhancers,
maybe this could make joys stay.
In a world with so much ugly,
try to enjoy this one day.
Cozy up, peaceful and snugly,
celebrate in my own way.
