Unexpected

They left by another road, a journey not anticipated
Did they worry at all about the child, or did they know
He would be taken care of by a star disappearing
No one had looked or noted it in the first place 
How gracious a sight in the sky, noticeable 
Only to those who watched and waited with hope
Finding the unexpected journey in very step
Yet willing to risk it all for the sake of one sight
Gifts left travel made hasty, dread from being the ones
Who revealed it to one who did not know of the origins
Did not know you can't defeat the stars, prophecy 
With death, only by following the unexpected road
