Carols By Candlelight


I saw the glow as I trudged home in the dark

And imagined the beautiful voices

The high ceilings

The peace.The lulling peace.

I paused. Maybe I would join you.

Maybe I would sing to heaven

And bask in the candlelight

But then I remembered

That you don’t accept me as I am.

You say ‘all are welcome’

But you consider  me sinner

More sinful than the rest.

I can’t join you.

I can’t cast my eyes to heaven

When my destination is sulphur.


And I am sorry. I really am.

There is so much that I believe in

It’s a pity you don’t believe in me.

You see me only, when I’m bubblegum,

Lots of fun

Pink and light

Oh what a sight !

You will think I’m sugar

A little too sweet

Good in small doses

An occasional treat

But when I pop

Gone is my air

The bubble I was

Is no longer there.

I’m stuck to your face

Unpleasant and sticky

Much more complicated

Much more tricky

I may appear fluffy

I may appear pink

But I never seem to float

I just tend to sink
