Hi George,

I was away for a few weeks, and am still getting caught up. I love the message conveyed in this poem. People need to wake up and realize what is important in life. "Give me all you owe me world cause I know I should receive" ... this is my favorite line, as it conveys how self-absorbed and selfish people have become.

Very well written and presented! Merry Christmas to you and yours! ~~ Connie

(To) say you love... (not "too")

(won't) - needs the apostrophe

"Spending money on gifts for someone (doesn't) mean..."

Well, George, this is certainly a poem desperately needed by some and I love that you promote the real meaning of the season. Blessings to you, sweet friend, and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

This is a very well written poem about so many that give the gift of selfishness on Christmas. You used very good descriptive wording and very good imagery. Blessings and Merry Christmas! Teri

Well done George. Great message. I have a favorite verse.

Wake up world and truly know your time on earth is really short.
Stop doing things like shooting up and finding things to snort.
Stop thinking everyone owes you something cause your wrong.
Change your ways of thinking or you wont be around for long.
I wish everyone could read this and think about it. xxx Nancy

I really enjoyed reading your poem, it is full of great advice. Especially, for our younger generation.

I am an old Vietnam vet and believe me, this country and most of the world has truly changed since those days.

Happy Holidays...Bill

This is food for thought, so many households argue Christmas Day and the day brings no merriment. The anticipation of making the day special turns into a disaster, but I love your closing words of advice and the last line sums your poem up! Love your country and don't make waves, just work together to make things good, love Dolly x

This questions what is our gift for Christmas, love, charity, toys, sweets? But poet reminds us celebrating Christmas not as a paid holiday but a real day gifted love to humanity; I like. ALCREATOR

Dear friend, George. Christmas can be a most stressful time of the year if one focuses on the commercial aspect and all the things that can't be bought that one doesn't even need in the first place.

You are terrific my friend, so don't ever change.

Gloria
