Surprised by our inability

Surprised by our inability 
by Joel Howard 

The news hits all over 
At warp speed 
“Did you hear!?”

It’s inability..

Inability to keep up
Inability to maintain love
Inability to re-create 

And now we’re left with hate..

Hate for the discomfort now
Hate towards sorrow 
Hate for how

How we misinterpret God
Hate for strife
Hate for how

How we’re empty 
O so empty 
This somehow comes as
News to you and me..

We didn’t know how lost we were
Our humanity sounds bleak 
And absurd

How could life bring so much harm?
We’re biting nails now in alarm
Each man for himself!
We draw the line..

God, come help us
Just this time!
