Purim Poem

Here's the poem I'm attaching to my mishloach manos.
Purim is a day of great celebration
Because we as Jews merited a miraculous salvation
We were in danger of being completely wiped out
But HaKadosh Baruch Hu heard our cries and our shouts

It was in the zechus of our tefillos and the teshuva that we did
That Hashem spared us from destruction-each and every yid
Let's take the message from the Purim Story deep inside our hearts
And try to work on fixing something-it's never too late to start

Sometimes we get distracted by costumes and themes
But let's not forget the nes purim and the lesson that it brings
Let's strengthen our resolve to daven with more concentration
And ask Hashem to redeem us-the entire Jewish Nation

Just like the yiddin in Shushan saw a big miracle in their times
Let's hope for a nes purim in our very own lives.
Let's all daven and beg for this galus to end
When Moshiach ben Dovid, Hashem will finally send!

Please note, if you found this poem and are planning to use it for personal use, I would appreciate if you can email me or leave a comment to let me know. 
Thank you.
