Life. It seemed to smile at me
Everything went the way it was meant to be
Until the day the Angel came
All I knew would never be the same
I felt it from that very moment
There was a change from that message sent
But even so, he would never believe
The blessed child I would soon conceive
But soon I definitely knew he'd see
The truth and believe that it was meant to be
Days and nights passed us by
We traveled from place to place, far and wide
In search for the special place
In this holy night to keep us safe
A child was born, Jesus he's named
Born in this world kept so unbearably untamed
Just like it was foretold
His reason to live was to save the world
Just like mine was to bring him here
Now life for me is so clear
In time everyone will know
Their own reason to live it will show
It will open up like doors
The reason to live...Do you know yours?

This poem was intended for a Christmas show at my school, unfortunelty I wasn't present to read it to everyone on that day. So I share it with you!
