Who is to blame, we do not know
Does it really matter?
Your suffering seems endless
I have consulted with God
He says all I can do is say a prayer for you
I said a prayer, it took all night
And it shall surely take very day too
Until the conflict is resolved I always think of you
Your mouth blown out by some stray bomb
Shelling, artillery flying everywhere around
Take heart in the knowledge God truly does exist
He’s inside of you, so tell Him you insist
That suffering and trauma must come to an end
Let not your strength nor your will bend
To evil as it become inflicted upon yourself
Rather though say a prayer for the perpetrator
For their days are to come and very soon
Only a few days and with the new moon
That high in the Heavens it rides a star
God is much closer and no longer afar
With His watchful eye and dedicated pen
Together we try and right the wrongs
Through a prayer for you all my Little Ones
For the Heart that is Ink now comes to you
Closer today, for those who pray, and Faith

A lot of people blame God for "not acting" to help these innocent victims of war. Many even say He is a cruel God Who does not listen, and does not care. Yet if we look at war from the rational point of view, it is man-made. Man caused the conflict and chose to make war. The consequences of Man's decisions (children dying) are unreasonably laid on God. Thank you for this inspiring poetry that moved me more to pray for the children.
Heartfelt, with some great images.
