Faith forsaken

I have seen a lovely flower,
wither up and die
I have seen a little boy,
throw back his head and cry

A girl was raped and to her
justice was denied
a lonely man, whose wife felt
their divorce was justified

I have watched clouds cry,
in sheets of pelting rain
I have tried to understand,
a jilted lover’s pain

To have felt courage falter
and faith break in strife;
having witnessed negativity i
bow to the futility of life
