Suffering

So much suffering!
Children dying without cause
The world filled with injustice
The heart breaks

I cry out against God,
How could God be so cruel,
The world itself seems our enemy
So many are struck down before their time

Children without fathers
Children who are not safe with their own families
Even children born with AIDS
How can a loving God let the innocent suffer

The heart remembers once God did come to earth
Knew poverty and suffering in life
Was beaten and abused
Died a violent death

God did not end suffering
God was compassionate, suffering with us.
