No change is brought though prayers besought
Unanswered question of century…s past
What happened to the miracles we were taught
when our call remains unanswered?
When God sheds tears from heaven no joy is brought…
When we walk through the valley of the shadow
of death… we fear every evil
of which there are many
lurking in the shadows
like fanged creatures waiting to strike
Parents without their children cry with the widows
Raging and venting their anger
against God and man
“Why was it my child who had to die today?”
Love and grace hide behind the storm clouds…
Pouring buckets of salty tears over the whole land.
Forty days and forty nights will nare suffice…
No ark prepared for this kind of calamity
will lift man or beast to the mountain top.
Grief runs deep as God remains in the shadows…
As always, waiting for the clouds of grief to separate
letting the light and hope shine through once more.
