Christmas Is Out, And The New Year Is In (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

Christmas is wonderful,
unless you’re sorrowful,
then it ain’t for you.

If you have to celebrate it,
when you’re not ready to face it,
then you must be ready to have a fit.

Christmas is a time for gossips,
oh how lovely those lips,
spilling secrets over a heap.

Brothers, sisters, cousins, and lovers,
to gather for uncles, aunts, fathers and mothers,
as grandparents grab onto their canes in laughters.

Christmas tree lights up the living room,
tick tock, clock hits 12, liven up the living room,
how many presents have you got in the room?

A year has already flown by,
Christmas is here to tell you why,
thus you must be ready for the new year night.

Personal agenda can be put on ice,
on a Christmas night there will be no fight,
sure, vices come to light, but things will be alright.

No matter how lonely you are,
no matter how cold a personality you are,
Christmas might just change the way you are.

Christmas spirit lights a fire in you alright,
warming you up with those shiny Christmas lights,
while you’re in a daze of not knowing why.

There’s always an exception to the rules,
Christmas might not be able to please you,
but at least it’s here to let in a new year into you.

As Christmas goes away to let a new year in,
some folks from far away must go back to their closer kin,
sorrowful or not, Christmas is out, and the new year is in.
