A Prayer for the Start of Advent

We have entered the season

Of office parties and neon lights

A season of drunk drivers

And crowded shops

A season of immense wealth

and immense poverty

A season when many

will eat and drink to excess

and millions will starve

Many will try to cloud out their troubles

With narcotics sold on our city streets

Streets which people will roam

Cold, alone, and homeless

A season when many will die

at the hands of men at war

Come light of the world

Bring new light to this world

In its darkness and despair

Come hope of the world

come and touch

Sooth your peoples pain

Come to a world

brutally raped of love

Come light of the world

Bring Joy

Bring Peace

Bring Love
