Wonder Why

//I wrote this a few days ago in response to all the tragic deaths that have been in the news lately.  Pray for our country.//

Wonder why
The blood of innocents and heathens runs
Together in a river to the sea –
The waves lift up their aching voice in song

Wonder why
The voices offer hate to combat death
And words of long-forgotten meaning scream –
The waves sing praise with ever-dying breath

Wonder why
The truth is hidden like a lion in the light
And eyes are blind by undivine decree –
The waves lift up their voice into the night

And waves crash uselessly on blinded eyes –
Can’t help but wonder why –
The Word has veins that run with scarlet love –
Don’t have to wonder why.

//Partially inspired by Psalm 93:3//
