A Christmas wish

So this is Christmas, is that really true,
why do you hate me, and why,
 do I try to kill you ?

Why can’t we live, in peace and accord,
to destroy each other,
 we just cant afford.

There is so much suffering,
in this world, in which we all live,
why is it all take, and so little give?

Regardless of religion, 
or what you believe,
try and give freely and see what you receive.

It may not be presents, of a material kind,
and no pretty boxes under a tree, 
may you find,

but make this Christmas Day, 
your number one,
and just give peace and love, to everyone.
