A Child Is Born - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

Dream child dream, light
up the skies with your
laughter, let your tears
fill the ground with love,
show the world theres
still hope, and show them,
a child will lead..

    David, you have much to say and often you say it well, but the 'poem gods' must cringe at your spelling. You owe it to yourself to use a spell check because your poetry will be much more credible.
