Door To Decision

We come from a turbulent past                                                                            old-door-knob-joanne-coyle
To an info-age moving way to fast
The fate of these lands
Is now placed in our hands

Will we bring destruction to an end
Will we have the power to mend
Save this fragile dreamland
Wash away our footprints in the sand

Global warming is causing weather changes right before our eyes
But we still blacken our skies
Sunrays take less time to burn our faces
But we still destroy our rain forests and just leave empty spaces

The men spill out of the factories everywhere
Punching their time clocks basically unaware
Don’t realize what’s happening to the big picture
The massive devastation of the atmospheric mixture

Every day go through their daily motions
Waiting it out for measly promotions
Distant stares and silent prayers
Monday to Friday . . . say goodbye

Our oceans are slicked with oil spills
Our waterways full of toxic waste that kills
We build our cities on mountains of pollution
Without an environmental solution

We live our lives in search of wealth
In the process damage our good health
Crime stories are found on every newspaper page
People loosing control in an uncertain age

The victims of greed are getting younger
In a world that still allows their hunger
Our petty problems make us hang down our heads
While million’s go unfed

Desire unfolds the light of our day
But we cannot give in to the subtle decay
We must rise above the haze descending
Toward mass action mending

We must take control of our actions today
or the children of tomorrow will be the one’s to pay
The new innkeepers shall soon take charge
of the next generation’s voyage at large

Trends are patterned and patterns trended
But man’s damage must be ended!

I recently read a poem by Rose Marie Rideout and wanted to share this wonderful poem with you. Please think about your Christmas this year and what you can do to share the Christmas warmth and cheer with someone in need.

 

A Beautiful Christmas

By Rose Marie Rideout

The streets have gone to silence,

Even the poor has laid their heads to rest.

Tonight Santa remembers all,

Each year he’s put to test.

The list gets larger every year,

No one wishes for peace and love,

No one takes the time to remember,

We celebrate Baby Jesus birthday up above.

How many think of our loved ones away,

Who give their all for us this day,

The hungry who are homeless and alone,

With no food and no place to call home.

No comfy pillow, no blanket to hug,

Just an old dampened box, and no one to love.

The beauty we see on the streets every year,

The lights and the soft glow glitter we share.

Just give a dollar, a pair of old worn gloves,

A scarf you don’t wear to show off your love.

The smiles and laughter show that we care,

If we’d take the time to wipe away another’s tear.

Buy an extra coffee along your way,

Reach out to a homeless cold person this day.

Let them see someone really does care,

Stop them before they shed another tear.

A pair of wool socks that sat in your drawer,

A coat that’s just not your style anymore,

It can keep another one warm from the cold,

Your heart will be happy inside I’m told.

Close your eyes and thank God up above,

For helping you know the meaning of love,

For making a difference to someone today,

By sharing a little throughout your day.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS
