Once more the cry goes up, “How long O God, How Long?”
How long must we hear the news scream of death and devastation?
How long must we call for action?
How long must we weep?
tell me what to do?
what action to take
what words to use
So that it will mean something
So that it is not empty
but filled with your love, and righteous anger
How long, can we go on like this?
How long before it happens in my yard; in my neighborhood, in my church?
How long, before the voices fall quiet, and no one is left to cry…
