Have you visited Carmen Henesy's blog? The name of her blog is Carmen's Chronicles. She is an amazing poet with very creative thoughts.
Recently, she composed a very touching poem; Thoughts of the Season. I'm proudly sharing it with you all in this post. The meaning is so beautiful, which can come from a pure soul's mind only. Tell me your thoughts on this poem. And do not forget to check her book — Life's Journey.
Thoughts of the Season
Far from the hills of Afghanistan,
Guns sound on American streets,
An innocent teen falls to the ground,
As his heart pumps its final few beats.
A mother pauses in cooking a meal,
In a home full of bright Christmas cheer,
As uniformed officers solemnly tell,
News she never thought she would hear.
So many go hungry all over the world,
They don’t have a feeling of joy,
No stockings are filled with wondrous treats,
For a good little girl or a boy.
In this season of love, goodwill to all men,
Terrorism is something we dread,
Why can’t we all aim for world peace,
And learn to negotiate instead.
We are all brothers, perhaps different colors,
Who share the holy seasons on earth,
May we join in our blessings, look into our hearts,
And see the value of each human’s worth.
