A CHRISTMAS POEM

It’s time now for Christmas, two thousand sixteen
And we say “peace on earth”, but this peace is so lean

Whites are against blacks and blacks are against whites
And Hispanics, too, are in the midst of the fight

Terrorists abound, wickedly spreading their fear
Killing at will, more and more every year

Babies are slaughtered before they are born
And drugs are made legal, so lives can be torn

Marriage has been cheapened into anything we want
And those who oppose this are met with a taunt

Boys will be girls and girls will be boys
Using bathrooms depending on their own private joys

What was once called evil is now thought as good
And morality is formed as each thinks it should

Peace on earth? I laugh at this thought
For this land is in chaos and goodness is not

But through this deep darkness a hope does shine clear
For two thousand years ago a Savior came near

He was born in cave where farm animals were fed
And laid in a manger with hay as His bed

But this child who was born in such humble estate
Was God in the flesh, who is mighty and great

Jesus was the name the parents gave to their son
And raised Him in Nazareth, a town all did shun

More than thirty years later on a cross He would die
To reconcile sinners to God the most high

And He rose from the dead, the Savior does live!
And to those who repent, salvation He’ll give

So in a world wrought with strife and where evil abounds
True peace can be yours, yes, it can really be found

But only through Jesus, the child who was born
Two thousand years ago on that first Christmas morn
