Thoughts for Advent: Day Twenty-Two

A Poem for Day Twenty-Two

The days wear on

Grinding poverty
and violence beyond comprehension
have brought a darkness
we cannot shift

The pain of ages
and we are broken

It is time now
it is time

The hot pain
wrapped and wracking
threatens to overwhelm

But you are not far away

Redemption is a plot unfolding
A mystery
a promise
a baby
