shine … #pauseforAdvent

to the child in the cold,
in the dark and the blackness
the light of God must shine.

to the man without hope,
without future or kindness
the light of God must shine.

to the woman who struggles
to get through each hour
the light of God must shine.

when will we understand
that it is we who are charged
with bringing the light of God?


Taken from Shine: poems and prayers
