Santa Claus

Santa Claus isn't real.
I don't know how to feel.
I've been lied to my whole life.
There's pain in my back from the knife.
What do I do without him?
Losing him is like losing a limb.
I am absolutely stunned.
Now I don't believe in him or his son.
If he were real he would've soothed me.
He would've answered my plea.
It was my friends and families bringing the gifts.
Now that I know, my beliefs will shift.
All the books about him lied.
My faith in him has died.
There's no more need to pray and kneel.
All of this because, Santa Claus isn't real.

    Santa is a great idea and a wonderful myth around which theres so much fun to be had at christmas time. Nice writing with a great return. Dont be worried about making everything rhyme always...plenty of good stuff doesn't rhyme.. It's the choice of words and phrasing in some poetry make it work.

      Thanks, but it's not really about Santa

      Well my faith in that one and his son died when we found out my daugher was severely mentally handicapped. I looked further and found lots lots more. TBH i cat understand why christian churches still teach things which their own theologists know to be wrong and inaccurate. Rhyme if you want to. Some people like it simple.

      Real or not, every year he comes out.
      A nice rhyme poem.
