Holidays, Holy Days and Days of Tradition

Holy Days in days of old
were about remembrance,
were about reverence.

Traditions were often followed
in order to remember,
in order to respect.

Holy Days in days of old
were about the Holy One,
were about honor and righteousness.

Holidays in days of old
were about rest,
were about rejuvenation.

Traditions were often followed
for the sense of continuity,
for the sense of security.

Holidays in days of old
were about family,
were about the ones you share life with.

Holidays, Holy Days and days of tradition
have become intertwined,
have become interchangeable.

Traditions are followed
with tenacity for identity,
with determination for fear of change.

Holidays, Holy Days and days of tradition
have robbed one of the holy and the sacred,
have made sacred and holy the other.
