Advent 2015

Waiting with hope
Sometimes I need a rope
To climb out of the pit
That materialism tends to knit

My intentions are good
But the devil tempts me with “I should…”
You fill in the blank
That leads to the perilous plank

Have I gone too far?
Have I crossed the proverbial bar?
I can now feel the stress
Hope has been replaced by anxiousness

There’s a feeling of emptiness
” Oh, how did I get into this mess?”
This Advent was to be simplified
Meditation time was to be multiplied

“There still is time it’s only the twenty third,”
The message coming from  a little bird
“Oh, come Emmanuel,” I pray
I spend some time with a lonely man this day
