It began with a birth... -- An Alphabetic Link Acrostic
A long time ago it began with a birth
Birth of a child God had chosen
Chosen one to be man's savior, his destiny
Destiny filled with many miracles enormous
Enormous his role to play in man's fate
Fate destined and watched over by God
God almighty, a new age his son would herald
Herald bold news, no longer whorship idols
Idols of gold, he let it be known was not just
Just believe in the one true God, heaven known
Known to be hated by those self appointed to lead
Lead the nation, selfish men hungry for more
More could see the corruption high in numbers
Numbers of believers grew high at the miracles observed
Observed by many with questions they did ponder
Ponder not for long, answers received to questions
Questions no more, faith was indeed raised
Raised higher also in those who followed the savior
Savior who was a humble servent and teacher
Teacher of peace, love, and understanding
Understanding each other despite resistance verily
Verily it came to pass his destiny fate did weave
Weave together the fate of all mankind xtry
Xtry was Jesus' sacrifice for old and young
Young life ended to save all, a martyr with zeal
Zeal to save all mankind for his father God Almighty
Author's Notes:
A poem I had written before Christmas but didn't have a chance to post until today.
It's also my first attempt at trying to combine these three forms ~ Link poetry, Acrostic, and Alphabetic (not sure who invented it though, but wanted to give it a try).
I know it needs some work so let me know what you think ~ any and all suggestions are welcome!

This is amazing!  Never before have I seen the life of Christ summed up so succinctly.  It is so clearly expressed, anyone can understand it.

WOW!  Very intereting!  I've read acrostic, I've read link poetry... never have I read both AND in alphabetical order.  Acrostic is so difficult.  This is a great subject AND a great read, thank you.
