Beyond Paper Doors
Chocolate hidden behind paper doors,
One opened every day –
All leading our expectations to –
More gift’s on X-mas Day.
What lies beyond those paper doors?
Not greed that leads astray –
But rather sacrifice to us does call,
To prepare, and wait, and pray.
Advent is an expectation,
Of God’s true gift to come,
And the One who was born just to die,
So victory could be won.
Let us then remember,
Advent’s true nature and call –
Each paper door brings us near –
To the Babe in the stable stall.
This is the second of my Advent poems, and I hope the theme is clear. Please note that “X-mas” is purposely used to indicate the diminishing of the reverence of the season.
