The Unfathomable

A twisted mind has torn
Our nation apart.
Innocent children have been
Sent to their graves
Way before their times.

The ones left behind
Are heartbroken and bewildered
By this senseless crime,
Leaving loved ones
Without their greatest treasure--their children.

This unthinkable tragedy
Tests the survivors ability to survive,
Perhaps their faith.
Making them wonder
How such a thing could happen.

But God is always in his heaven,
In charge of all,
Even when the WHY of such events
Is unfathomable.



  1. We never know the reasons for such a tragedy. All we want is closure. I hope this poem you've offered helps. Thank you, Mary.

  2. Your assessment is so true. Closure will be hard to obtain for those involved.

    Thanks for your input, Sharon.
