Question Everything – POEM #23 NATIONAL POETRY MONTH 2019

“Pray for the victims” they all said in unison

“But they were all praying”
Said a young kid

Some Adult signed ‘hush’ at the kid
and the kid became silent…

But there was a seed sown in him
the seed to question….
the seed to not take irrationality without doubting…

A God that human created to protect them
having to need protection..
does not make sense

And if the God cannot protect his own worship center
then who is he protecting…
and from whom…

Question….. don’t Pray….
Victims need help… not prayers….
be Rational…

Yes…
Pray for your peace of mind…
if you have to….
Nothing else….

The questions that is most important is
How do we stop violence….?
How do we not let innocents die..?
How do we stop violence….?
How do we not let innocents die..?
How?
How?
How?
