Poem – Questions


A baby was just born in her family.

Her heart was filled with joy, she knew.

An elderly person has just died in her family.

She cried, she cried, she cried,

and then,

When

she heard the terrible news story

that several young children

died all together

in a horrific accident,

she felt like her heart shattered.

It’s finally on the mend.

She did not know them personally

but she knows what mattered.

A mother’s love.

A father’s love.

Their children torn from them

It was not so long ago

that they rejoiced

that the babies were born

of them.

“The good die young”

The bad die old?

Is that how the story goes?

Or the good will be blessed

with long life?

Is that what is often told?

We do not know.

We do not know.

Only God knows.

If we do not just leave

it up to God,

we will have lots and lots

of questions.

Too many questions.

We will cry.

We will ask why.

We will have too many questions.
