Ujamaa Christian Poetry
What Is Christmas?
I like to think at times like these
that Christmas means more than a tree.
More than gifts in stores we buy
more than the singing of Yuletide.
What does Christmas really mean?
And how did we come to worship a tree?
When did the season drift away
from the true meaning of this blessed day?
How did the birth of our Lord Jesus
become hidden behind a pile of presents?
How many times will we stop this day
to remember His birth, give thanks and pray?
Do we teach our children what Christmas means?
Do we truly celebrate the birth of our king?
Or, is Christmas just another day
that we glutton and rip and play -
thinking of ourselves and our new treasures...
forgetting the One who resides up in Heaven?
Let us stop for a moment, bow our heads and pray
thank you God, and Jesus, happy birthday.
