Birth of Jesus

by Chanchal Sarin

Darkness and chaos were on earth
Evils and sins sprouting in the soil of many minds

A candle emerges in the deep darkness
The flame, a metaphor for goodness
A life appears
A virgin birth
Down to earth
In humble circumstances
In a manger
Light appears
Triumph over darkness
A spiritual insight visible
Jesus is born
Asleep in hay bed

A saviour
A healer
Divinity on earth
A bright morning after dark night
It is Christmas Day
Jesus is born today

Jesus, the light of the world
Performed miracles
Gave life to his disciples
Sacrificed his life for others
Rising again three days after burial
A God’s light
Rises again
A soul never dies
Gives us insight.
