After not participating for several years, tonight I had the inclination to jump back into Five Minute Friday. This piece actually took closer to 30 minutes, but I didn’t feel that it was done after five so I kept writing and re-working. Today’s prompt was why.
Why is the sky blue?
Why are the stars bright?
Why isn’t everything black and white?
Why do people hurt?
Make others cry?
Why do good people have to die?
Why are we here –
Just dust and sod?
Why are we made in the image of God?
Why don’t we know
What will happen tomorrow?
Why make a world You knew would bring sorrow?
Why do we struggle
With the idea of grace?
Why is it so hard to accept and embrace?
Why are You quiet
When the world is so loud?
Why don’t you shout over the deafening crowd?
I’m linked up at Five Minute Friday, so why not jump over there and visit some of the other writers who joined in this week?
