yay for an acrostic, rhyme, and free verse mash-up. a very merry christmas to you all. ❤
Can’t you hear the silent screams and loud laments
Haunting these decked-out streets tonight?
Right when peace is said to have arrived,
Instead this world is wracked by evil’s blight.
Some cry joy in fake fluorescent-light voices,
Too many others cry in corners of despair.
Mary, did you know that your Child’s birth
Accounts for the pulse of unspoken pain in the air?
Still, we need saving. Even now, we need saving. Save us.
you shall call His name Jesus for He shall save His people from their sins
