Among The Tombs

by Marvin Lee

where were you?
my God,
when I was lost,
abandoned,
forsaken,
walking among the tombs,
of this pain filled world,
I've seen starvation,
sickness,
death,

people murdered for a single cup of water,
children abandoned,
digging through trash,
fighting over a single scrap of bread,

people tired,
wanting,
demanding change,
screaming,
for their voices to be heard,
throats raw,
bloody,

but this world is fallen,
and evil is unchangeable,
immovable,

it glories,
in pain,
despair,
and death,

why my God?
have you allowed this,
suffering,

#

my child,
it is through my mercy,
that I sustain the world,
and all things,

and until that final day,
everyone deserves a chance,

you may walk among the tombs,

but my son conquered the grave,
I care for you,
loving you,
so believe,
and have eternal life.
