My Journey to God

Virginia Tech Tragedy

What sin is this
That enters in
Where youthful hopes and dreams

The anguished wails
To heaven rise
As Rachel for her children

The killer,
Still himself a child—
What made his angry heart
Go wild?

No easy words,
No black, no white,
The answer’s hidden
In Thy sight.

But plain as plain
For us to see:
Love’s lack begets
