The Path of Jesus

There was a man

An enlightened man

A simple man

Brought into this world 

Given as a gift to us

He showed us a path

A path to be followed 

A path of kindness 

A path of compassion 

A path of sympathy 

A path of forgiveness 

Forgiveness for humanity 

Our weaknesses 

Our faults 

He saw our possibilities 

He saw our salvation 

Humanity's path

A path of light

        That light is still there, all we need to do is see it.

        Ahh a fine write L. Seems like there is a hymn-poem in there. But, oh no, I will only sing it then. That will spoil everything! lol.

        An excellent poem that forces us to realize what Christ gave for our salvation. This is a great write.
        Merry Christmas to you and your family.
