POEMS | Another Christmas by Joshua Anglo
By Joshua Anglo
Its yet another Christmas,
I will decorate my house
Put up the star, light the Christmas tree
But to the dilapidated church, ignorant I will be.
I will sing melodiously
Harvesting malice in my heart.
I will look my best, conceal all my flaw
I don't want to seek Christ
Pin pointing others is my custom now.
I will pray for selfish gain.
Turning blind eye to other's pain.
I will wash other's feet for world to witness
But the tumult within me won't rest.
I will abashedly politicize and speak foul
Humbly I won't bow down
How long every Christmas will pass by like this?
How long I will fool myself, losing out on eternal grace.
Let Christ be born in your heart.
Redeem your soul,
Let all frivolities depart.
