May 31-June 8, 2021


I'm wearing out, I can't do this anymore

it's becoming difficult to keep on crying

overwhelmed by far too many sadnesses

my eyes cannot weep these endless tears

my heart is broken, it can take no more

is becoming calloused at the precipice

no human should ever have had to see

no human should ever have tried to fill


oh dear God, we are fallen still

save us


oh dear Lord God this grief is too great

my frail form cannot understand it

I cannot grasp that such pain exists

was made by those of my own blood

oh dear Lord God in Heaven, help!

may I weep with those who also weep

may we find our comfort in Your justice

may our tears find rest in Your mercy


oh dear God, may we see Your grace

help us



After yet another murderous rampage

in which four people on an evening walk

were killed, simply for being Muslim.


Oh dear God,

we need You!
