How to find Christmas,
In the midst
Of sale signs on store walls.
Drowning in crowds at the malls.
Type Ctrl-F “Joy.”
Whatever brings you joy,
Like a kid with a new toy,
Do that to open your heart.
Clear your mind and find a new start.
Type Ctrl-F “Meditation.”
Meditation over medication,
Deep breaths and a still station.
Mary pondered Jesus’s birth in her heart.
Open yours to music, dancing, and art.
Type Ctrl-F “Celebration.”
Celebrate a babe named Jesus
With lights on a birthday cake, make wishes.
That despite darkness, strife, and despair,
You treat yourself and others with loving care.
Thus finding Christmas within.
