Two boys awoke on christmas morn'
One with a smile, the other tears.
Ever since they had been born,
Santa had come but once a year.

But things were not the same this time,
clouds had hid the rising sun,
Santa struggled to find a dime,
and brought christmas to only one.

The shame of it that such a day,
Got lossed somewhere in years gone bye.
When children that should be at play,
Our torn apart and for a lie?

The notion finds me in despair,
On days of our lords celebration,
Santa comes, yet still unfair
to children poor around the nation.

I do my part, I play the role.
I understand that life is tough.
Still as the passing days take toll
I wonder if its all enough?


My challenge is not in poetry, but in life, I hope that we all can find the time and money to make a donation, no matter how small to the local toys for tots, or similar programs in your area, It feels good, trust me =)

Yes, it does, Kevin. Even a small act on our parts can mean so much to those in need. I join with you in your challenge.
