By Ladybug   

Aren’t you all happy?
Christmas is here!
The most wonderful
Time of the year!

But call me Scrooge or Grinch
Say I don’t have a reason
I can’t help but feel sad
During this jolly, festive season

Even surrounded by family
And my dear, loving friends
I really can’t wait
For this holiday to end

But I don’t want them to worry
I’m the one who cheers up others
So instead I’ll just wait
And cry under my covers

“Why can’t I be happy?!”
I’ll scream when I’m alone
My friends will send cheer
I won’t answer my phone

But for now, I fake a smile
And blink away tears
After all, isn’t this
The happiest time of year?
