When Haiti shook
And the old colonial
Structures fell
Who was to blame?

When the rains fell on Madeira
Making rivers of mud
Where once were roads
Who was to blame?

When earthquake and tsunami
Wreaked their havoc
On Chile's coast
Who was to blame?

The zealots speak of God's wrath,
Divine retribution
Against the wicked of the world
Smiting the transgressors
But it's not the wicked who suffer
It's the most humble and devout
The poor and the needy
Who suffer the most
Why would God do such a thing?
What would be gained?
It's not a Godly act
But rather that of a tyrant
That's not what my God would do
My God is a loving God
Not a wrathful being

The secular blame God
For not stopping natural disasters
They don't believe in him
But blame him anyway
Where was God?
What was God doing when he was needed?
When something wonderful happens
They praise nature's ingenuity
Yet when tragedy strikes
It's "where was God?"
God is not to blame
It is not within his power to prevent disasters
So he does what he can
He comforts and supports
Eases suffering and ends pain
But my God is not to blame

Mother Nature is the culprit
The planet is angry with mankind
And unleashes these acts of spite
To punish us for our indifference
Mother Nature roars
And defines our insignificance
When the earth moves
And mountains split
When winds tear up all before them
And the seas rise up
We are powerless
But we are not alone
When we are at our most vulnerable
Who do we call upon? God
Whoever that God might be
Mine is an understanding God
A compassionate God

I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
