Its not fair

There are always consequences
Evil brings suffering
Good increases the common wealth
Yet the evil will steal from the good

Why do the good suffer by the hands of the evil?
Why do the good pay the consequence of another’s sin?
Why do the evil prosper by the hands of the good?
It seems that punishment is transferred to the innocent!

The heart breaks at the unfairness
Praying for mercy from a merciful God
Praying for the strength to survive
Wondering if God can be both merciful and just

Perhaps it would be better to seek peace than fairness
Justice appears just beyond reach
