I Ask God Why? Poem

Hello my name is Emma, and I am a fifty year old woman who has gone through a lot of trials and tribulations in my life. The most devastating event that I ever had to deal with was the murder of my one and only son in 2007. I must tell you that this event changed my life, my perspective, and my focus. It made me realize just how blessed my life has been even when I did not think that it was. It made me understand the importance of my relationship with God and my family.

I watch the sun rise in the sky
I ask God the question, Why?
Why is there hatred in the world?
Why are there starving boys and girls?
Why is there addiction everywhere?
Why are there people not willing to share?
Why is there prejudice and fear?
Why are there people not willing to be near?
I say, God please tell me why.
Then he whispers me a simple reply,
You must experience bad to know the good
You must do right just as you know you should
You must love me, yourself, and everyone
You must spread hope, faith, and love until your life is done
You must do unto others as you want them to do to you
You must persevere in all you do
All these things you must embrace
And God assures, everything else will fall into place.

Very deeply I have been touched. To have faith on Him is the duty of a man. To have faith on God, doing right, and thinking right are the qualities the poet has expressed in the poem that have really touched me. I will always welcome this type of poems from the poet. Thanks.
