When Light Was Born
By Stacey Covell
She was a pregnant, unmarried teenager.
He was trusting in faith and love.
They were both scared.
Still, in the dark of night they had faith.
They were following the words of their Lord.
Days and nights.
Travelling slowly, uncomfortably.
She was nearly full term.
No hospitals. No room.
Babies don’t wait.
A barn. Animals. Stink.
That star lit Bethlehem night.
A baby was born.
Naked, helpless, dependent.
The most humble start.
A new family.
Sitting in a barn.
The baby. A King.
In a moment, the world was changed.
Light was born.
