christmas poem 2019

Symbols of advent are all around, cards in shops, joyous sounds,
People are crowding in markets and stores,
Buying the presents which tradition ensures,
Whilst on the streets of the city, the homeless are there,
Some drugged or drunk or just in despair,
One never knows the stories they tell,
Of breakup or heartache and illness as well,
We just walk on, our eyes do not see,
How troubled and lonely these people can be,
A few people at Christmas, disturbed by their plight,
Do offer a meal and a bed for the night,
Emulating the story passed down through the ages,
The baby, the stable, the visit of Sages,
Let’s hope that the homeless, find ease from their plight,
And New Year brings secure homes for the night.
