A SAVIOUR IS BORN – by Oluwatosin Faith Kolawole

There is a loud noise in heaven
A prophecy has been fulfilled
And the messiah is coldly wrapped in a sulking manger
.
The news of his birth
Laces our hearts with edible Joy
For fulfilment, for peace.
.
‘The son of man is come to save that which was lost’
It rings in our ears till each word etches
Swiftly on our mEYEnds
.
With each breath taken
And every spittle swallowed
The rhythm sings along:
‘A saviour is born’
.
