a prayer for those lost in Bangladesh

There are things as humans we are not meant to understand

Like why Mother Nature would allow destruction beyond what we can comprehend

Yet we can grasp what it means to lose

And most of the time it’s not ours to choose

It happens when we expect it least

Loved ones swallowed whole by a horrible beast

Families torn to pieces with no chance to reunite

Despair instantly replaces happiness with no relief in sight

We look to something else other than ourselves to blame

To think otherwise would place unbearable shame

Days like these beg to have the rest of us stare darkness down in the face

If nothing else the world needs to replace blindness with grace

Because all these people are just like you and I

And just like us they do not deserve to die
