What Has God To Do With All Of This?


When we prolong:
The terribleness of our world,
Hatred makes a deliberate effort
To stay on!
Until we respond to the agony
Of so many –
None of us can sleep in comfort.
Hatred will make rings of snares!


How do we describe to each other,
The intensity of splattered blood-baths?                
How do I explain to myself –
About the families that drown
In the elements of nauseous darkness?
There is not much left in us,
When we remain indifferent
To the state of death, wandering!
