3rd Place (English Poetry)

A Child Of Peace

By Alvin Laput

A new child is born

At my heart’s very core

A gift from the Father

My purest heart needs to heed

He will bring light to my world

Heal my blindness, fill my hunger

Brings havoc to my old ways

But serenity to the new

His ways are different from my ways

Asking me to leave everything I believe

Acceptance is difficult

That it tears my person apart

But I know he’s the one

The one I need to believe

To trust and to hold-on

That in the end he will bring me peace.
