Human Faith

I have never seen anything similar in my life,
Though I have seen many disasters and strife,
I have never seen anything as painful as war,
As I hear not about less destruction but more.

Although I have heard about fright and scare,
I have never said too much never being there,
Sometimes I feel like I want to shout out loud,
From a distant galaxy, planet, at least a cloud.

Ah, sorry I cannot imagine as it seems so dark,
I just can't find any compassion in their heart,
And how come there is not enough sun in the sky,
Shielding by the darkness of destruction, oh why?

Is there something like a secret I didn't know?
Is this how warriors allow human life to grow?
Sacred! Is this how things are supposed to go?
What is the reason signs of life, do not show?

Something is happening now, every single day,
Living different sides will not take pain away,
But raising our head, see we only have one sky,
Can I see it being written before my very eyes?

Incursive, with the flair of freestyle French,
I can do it with my eyes closed, it’s a cinch,
Yet without training that effort is not enough,
So only the mountain can make the valley tough,

Hey! Did you forget the earth remains our place?
Yeah! We simply cannot escape into outer space,
Maybe! You close your eyes even plug your ears,
Can wishful thinking replace or calm your fears?

Sad, because even should you shut your eyes,
Greater human bondage will be of no surprise,
Isaiah 22: 22, the keys from shoulder to hands,
Why do we lock the silence and open the damn?

My Lord! Grant us the strength to patiently wait,
The path is so long life isn't so simple a mistake,
Broken in the wilderness but the effort goes on,
Eternity's Your dwelling place to us life is long.

As another sun arises I rush to the window, alas,
Even soldiers have to sleep in the looking glass?
Over there a struggle, caterpillar, nature, sigh,
Ccocoon is broken, shedded, it’s Fatima Butterfly.

Where do you propose to go with multi-colored wings?
Chirp, chirp, red robin to translate, of all things,
Taller, shorter or whatever but which way did he go?
Circumstances making you think God is not in control?

I’m supposed to be in a state of animation for real?
Let down my guard for a second, happiness you steal?
Another day older but wiser so why must we comprise?
Master piece of suspicion to be camouflaged in lies.

Father’s love is not separate yet we cannot find?
A cure for animal behavior within the human mind?
My Lord keep us safe through a contract by right,
2nd Corinthians 5: 7, walk by faith not by sight.
