    Dear Santa, my name is Michael
    and this year my twin sister
    Michelle and I were extra good
    All we want for Christmas is
    Food, clothing and a better
    Place to live
    Momma trying her best and
    It’s getting hard because yesterday
    She lost her job
    Daddy been gone for a long
    While and we can hear momma

    Cry late at night when she think
    We sleep Santa can you also
    Bring something so momma won’t
    Weep
    Michelle is growing up so fast
    Momma say she grows like a weed
    So can you get my sister some good
    Clothes that won’t tear up
    When we wash them in the machine
    My sister has very long
    Hair so can you get her some
    Pretty pink bows and maybe some
    Thick socks for her toes

    Oh yeah Santa can you get
    My momma some nice dresses
    And that perfume she used to
    Wear
    If you can manage it can you
    Get us a betta place to live
    Momma done her best but
    This place is a reck last night
    I saw two rats run cross my
    Sista’s mat…

    I know you have much to do
    So I won’t ask you to get me
    Anything this year well there
    Is one thing if you could make
    Me bigger so I can take care
    Of my momma and my sista
    I know I’m only nine but
    I can do it if you fast forward
    Tyme


    Thank you,
    Michael

    sista

    this is awesome!

    I read part 2 first....

    lawd haf mersay! this is such a heart-rending piece chile!
    so poignant and so real because so many children believe...

    my 10 year old son told me, about 2 years ago...that a classmate told him in all sincerity (because my son has always known the deal about Santa)....that he wouldn't go to heaven if he didn't believe in Santa Claus....

    ok?


    thank you for this

    that's a good thing that you are participating in. We have the empty stocking fund here where you buy just the ordinary every day things like soap, toothpaste and things and it all goes to the womenshelter and homeless shelters. My mom for the last few years actually goes down to as many as she can get to and hand deliver these items. Sometimes I go, but most of the time I can't take it you know.

    So if you would for ya lil sis, take that $100 purchase those items and find a womenshelter/childrenshelter and give it to some of the ladies there. I mean put it in their hands if you can. That would me a lot to me.

    Dear Santa

    fill our arms with your hope
    help us see things through

    street corner a form
    of selling dope

    he's hanging by a rope
