Bereaved Poem by Kingsley Ukpanyang

Bereaved



For the families of those that
died in the man's acts of
violence,
I offer to you my deepest
condolences.

I see on your faces as tears
suffuse;
What a shock it must have been when came the news.

The misfortune is great, plotted by evil hands;
Yet there's a reason that only God understands.

Let not your bleeding tears
drown the trust you've got in Him,
But love and hope should fill your hearts to the brim.

Love - to forgive and your
brokenhearts amend.
Hope - that this savagery soon will end;

That your anguish will be o'er,
And in grief, shall you not shiver.

You'll be strengthened to
endure,
Forget…laugh, remember… but
feel your pains no more...
