"The course of true love never did run smooth"

- Lysander in A Midsummers Nights Dream

She sits in a darkened room. The darkness is closing. She feels like giving up. She sits there crying. Tears of hurt tears of pain. The only light the only hope; is in a box closed tight and fast. The girl decides to open it. She saunters over to the box and takes a peek inside. Inside is simply this. A manger scene with a baby boy inside.
Around him stand three men so wise bearing gifts. An angel with shining eyes and silvery wings; a young girl and young man Mary and Joseph. Next to the box lays a little black book. Bible is written on the front in golden letters. Light eliminating from the sides. The girl picks it up and opens it up to read inside. She opens up to Psalm 119:105. Here is what she read.“Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path”
