A poem about how God might ease the pain of a horrific tragedy.
|A heartfelt ambition which doesn’t augment
A serious notion of baseless development -
Spawned with acknowledged, auspicious intent -
A fallowed result of tidy empowerment.
Victorious now, we sense that it’s rare;
A father and mother reflect on the crime;
Seek His deliverance, and welcome the prayer;
Saintly and pure, they corral every chime.
Nature’s avoidance bears too little guilt;
Studies convey the consulting of needs;
That’s the Almighty’s plan truly built -
Furthering promise of ventures and deeds.
Rather than promise, a scenic reminder -
A modern solution for gifts so perennial -
The spiritual focus - great reads and a finder;
A placated version for hearts too revertible.
