Peace for Troubled Hearts

As I hang the shining “Star of Bethlehem” atop my Christmas tree I recall with joy, the greatest miracle there was to be Two thousand years have passed since; yet, truth still holds And for me it is not some old folklore; or some legend of old There is a mighty king who willingly gave up his crown Donning mortality, he, "love unconditional", came down Pure love, accompanied by a peace, meant for every man His words and example were the seeds to plant. I still believe in miracles even when others can’t digest I wish for a miracle today in the deafening halls of Congress That by some magic, they could walk in the peoples’ shoes Feel the alarming fear of young and old; and I pray they’d choose- Peace for troubled hearts and all Relief for hurting people with backs against the wall ~*~

    Yes pray for out leaders that they might see the needs of other less fortunate, Annalise. Love unconditional is the only answer to the human dilemma. Congrats on your worthy poem win. Agape, Moses
