If I Were Santa

If I were Santa,
I would have chosen
To gift the children of the world
Yes, I would,
With presents made of different substance!

Pray, I would have given them
Laughter, families,
Trust, love, care,
Peace, happiness,
Food, shelter and clothing
To last as long as Existence would
Deem them to!

If I were Santa,
I would have chosen
To gift the adults of the world
Yes, I would,
With presents made of different substance!

Pray, I would have given them
Reason, notion, concept, purpose,
Insight, love, brotherhood, sharing,
Selflessness, actions and humility
To last as long as Existence would
Deem them to!

If I were Santa,
I would have chosen
To gift Earth, our mother,
Yes, I would,
With presents made of different substance!

Pray, I would have given her
Accountability seen in her children
Merely to allow her to return to being
A state of heaven where living
Feels as ambient as does a dip
In a clean and fresh clearwater pond!

If I were Santa,
Pray, I would have offered healing
To each and every parcel of this world
Being so like a revolving mess
In a sea of confusion
A sea,
Controlled by a whirlpool
Which engulfs everything approaching it
In its vicious cycle!

Why, if only,
I could be Santa!
