‘Tis the season to be aware
of your actions, words and deeds.
My wish for you this Xmas
is that you get exactly what you need.
Replace old traditions with new ideals,
Replace what you’ve accepted with the truth.
Replace excessive spending with empathy,
Replace knick-knacks with things you can use.
Replace intolerance with justice,
Replace war with intelligence.
Replace uncertainty with understanding,
Replace religion with reverence.
Replace all that you want with what you deserve,
Replace consumerism with content.
Replace presents with hugs-a-plenty,
Replace gluttony with nourishment.
‘Tis the season to be thankful
for the lessons good and bad we’ve received.
May your Xmas be full of laughter and joy,
Safe, happy and cruelty-free!
