Star of Bethlehem

I scour the skies to find

The light shines in the darkness

a false star rising

and the darkness did not overcome it

haloed with fire power

When they saw that the star had stopped

(not everything that wears

(he sent and killed 

a halo is holy)

all the children)

the new star of Bethlehem pauses

they were overwhelmed

satellite silence falling

A voice was heard in Ramah

I scour the skies for a sign

weeping and loud lamentation

that will set the world

An angel of the Lord suddenly

or at least my heart

appeared in a dream

on fire

and the darkness did not overcome it

 


John 1:5, Matthew 2:10 (Matthew 2:16), Matthew 2:18, Matthew 2:19, John 1:5b
