A Man's birthday



A Man’s birthday

                                                
It’s Christmas and that Man is alone...
Cards, hugs, kisses on the phone...
I think He is sad despite the celebrations
Gifts just gifts without innovations…
Alone in a crowd, He looks for His name...
Nobody announces Him. Talks are the same.
Garlands and trees, shiny colorful balls;
People up and down just crowding the malls!
Whose birthday is that? Why people rejoice?
Oh! The media announcing, there is no choice
‘Take your gifts to your house!’
– They only think of Santa Claus…
Most of them know nothing about The Man, I guess.
They drink and dance, yell and make mess.
And The Man goes lonely looking over hills
Dancers and drunkards spinning like mills...
…………………………………………..
Say, look!
He’s not far!  He’s here!  He’s everywhere!
He lives and still cares for us somewhere!
He has done His task and shown us the way.
He was crucified , died to pay
Our sins and faults. He gave us Salvation!
Guess what! Yes, He’s Jesus... Forgive us, Lord!... Congratulations!!!
