Sadness Reigns (2) - Poem by Melvina Germain

Well it's gloomy outside, I suppose that goes with the day as we are not happy here in Canada. However, I say to you, have a beautiful day and smile as much as you can.

Here's some words that quickly came to me after reading this morning news...

Sadness Reigns

Today sadness reigns
in a small community,
(La Loche, Saskatchewan)
in Canada, we cry out in pain
for the whole world to see.
Please pray for our families
as we've often done for you,
it is now our time to weep
may God see us through.
We'll remember this day
while awake or when we sleep.
We will deal with the horror
praying day after saddened day,
but we'll never understand
the devastation made.
Children never allowed to soar,
never to come home again.
How does one deal with such pain
of family or a friend.
We bow our heads in prayer
for those we may not know
and we ask God for a healing
to be placed upon this world.
To cover all the victims and
perpetrators alike,
for we know not why such tragedy
must come forth day or night.
From a smiling happy face
to a raging monsters act
killing for no reason,
moving forth with a brutal attack.
No confrontation, no fight,
yet raising arms against the innocent
with all of his might.
Why we ask, why must we endure
such an evil act, this we know for sure.
What lies beneath this mask
only a silent killer knows.
Help us Lord to find the answer
before this epidemic grows.
