Peace on Earth?

Christmas creeping ever nearer,
commercialism running rife.
Around the globe the picture’s clearer –
too much sorrow, too much strife.
Where now is the peace on earth,
where the goodwill to all men
promised by a baby’s birth
long ago in Bethlehem?

    If we could all recognize our inner glow and learn how to project it-
    Perhaps then all of humanity could be protected.
