Sad Is This Season

Sad is this season
That its kindness is fleeting
Gone in the new year
Replaced once again with greed
And loveless human spirit
Quickly we forget
The message of tradition
Tossing it aside
When it no longer serves us
Returning to loathsome ways

  1. Christmas always confuses me. It’s supposed to be a time of giving and joy, but it tends to be the period where I run into some of the angriest people in the world. If not angry then judgmental, greedy, etc. I see you have ‘materialism’ as a tag, so I wonder if that side of the coin has done some permanent damage to the holiday.

    • I agree that this time of year brings out some of the angriest and mean-spirited people that you will ever meet. As far as “materialism” goes, I think that it has caused people to lose the true meaning of Christmas which as you mentioned is supposed to be a time of giving and joy. It isn’t about getting the latest video game or that trendy and expensive purse or any of a million other things that we “want”, but don’t need. I find it to be quite sad really that so many people don’t even remember what the holiday is even about. Whether it has done permanent damage or not I don’t know, but it certainly hasn’t helped it in the slightest.
