A pile of name brand clothes,
An iPhone,
A remodeled room,
A new hairstyle,
I need to fit in,
Please Santa,
For Christmas.

A face cleanser for my acne,
A pair of contacts,
Clothes that fit my heavy figure,
An ounce of courage to stand up for myself,
I need a friend,
Please Santa,
For Christmas.

A kiss as I fall asleep,
The empty chair filled at the dinner table,
The flag taken out of our windowpane,
For him to return from the Marines,
I need to know he is safe.
Please Santa,
For Christmas.

Warm embraces when I come home,
Help with homework,
A home cooked meal,
A cure for cancer,
I need my mom back,
Please Santa,
For Christmas.

A small bowl of rice,
A bucket of clean water,
A safe place to live,
A smile on my mother’s face,
I need my family to survive,
Please Santa,
For Christmas.
