Reason

Many are confused this time of year
The end of the calendar should bring forth cheer
What’s turned into complexity time and time again
Ignores the simplistic message that delivers us from sin

What if you had your celebration stolen
How would you react if others got the attention
There are all kinds of raw emotion
With which have interrupted the true relation

It isn’t about gifts plural or money spent
It’s about a gift that allows us to experience Heaven
What many people hope and dream
Has lost touch with what reality means
Christmas isn’t Santa or decorative trees, but the facts of the nativity

Keep Christ in Christmas because He loves
You wouldn’t want anyone to “X” you out, especially the One up above

Stuck

Caught in the middle of a stressful situation
Being brought into the fold is never easy
One side needs support and the other information
We humans are a complicated species

Hard to pick and choose who to lose
When your obligation to each side is crucial
There’s never a time when stress is good news
However it is important to always remain truthful

One side a brother the other an uncle
Lives changing dependant on the time
Both family members of course are special
Their situations both weighing heavy on the mind

What to do or when to do it
Both questions that require careful consideration
When the going gets tough, you never quit
So forward I go with the knowledge of each side’s confidence

View

Everyone around me with their life changin’
I look in the mirror only to find similar situations
Nothing new just a stagnant race
While others continue to put smiles on their face

People getting married and having babies
Others finding good careers or graduating
I remember the days where it seemed ok
The ones where I was progressing each day

I’ve been the centerpiece to a lot of discussion
Helping people with a bit of encouragement
They needed advice so they didn’t think twice
About the doubt that could sometimes cloud their minds

I know that with each day I’m blessed
With all the successes and happiness I’ve witnessed
Just seems that it all has been lost in time
As I sit here continuing to analyze

Where has it all gone
Where in the cycle do I hop back on
This adventure never ceases to amaze
What will tomorrow do to bring change

Pressure

This year slips through my fingertips
With regret of what I should do growing thick
Time is highly effective on ones perspective
Time is an enemy that always wins

The repetition involved waking up each day
What is it that you do to stay sane
Another moment has passed
And another memory cemented fast

It’s easy to get caught up in thought
Distraction though can leave one distraught
Looking for the future in the past
Isn’t something that’s proven to be steadfast

The matters of the heart being untapped
With the matters of the mind keeping me trapped
Each time the clock ticks I could collapse
Knowing that there is plenty to do in order to fill the gaps
