Annually

I wonder    
if galactic races  
ponder the meaning
of multicolored lights  
and "Peace on Earth  
Goodwill to men"
 
annually    
   
vs daily    
   
How the majority  
of the planet  
lays down its arms  
to string strands  
from tree & rooftop  
to outlet power,
but not for understanding
or Love
   
Why consumers    
spend and pretend    
regret won't swallow    
the budget whole  
in the year to come    
   
All because we fear    
the unknown:    
broken patterns  
the path less taken  
advanced aliens    
or the nature
of our true selves    
   
So, thank you    
for accepting who I am  
vs who you want me to be,  
for supporting my choices  
even if different    
from what you wish to see,  
for contributing    
to my well-being  
even if it means releasing  
an ideal or dream  
into the ether of reality—  
in this lifetime, anyway  
   
It's the Spirit of Christmas    
everyday vs annually    
and I'm pretty certain  
galactic races    
ponder the pleasure    
of supportive selflessness    
amid a species    
known to annihilate    
their own existence    
repeatedly  
~
