Awkward carols

Christmas carols are not typically sung

Outside of December.

As such, I think we can be forgiven

For not getting the cadence and rhythm of the words right

As we awkwardly stumble through

Long pauses and extended notes

In very wordy verses.

It’s awkward but still worth doing.

You know what else is awkward

Around this time of year?

Making peace.

Saying “I am sorry”

Explaining why you’re offended.

Accepting help.

Spending time with people you love

But not always like.

Like a Christmas carol

You know that while the essence is good

The implementation is often clumsy-

But always worth doing.

Have a good Christmas.
