God Where is Our God

Written by: Carlos Mongrut

God, Where is our God?
automatically, I ask
after I hear the news
of a horrible attack

Why the devil has to be
alone to do as he pleases
Why innocent lives
have to die in homicide?

God, Where is our God?
the one that burns inside
why do you stay in silence
when blood is spared in violence?

Why do you let children
die in such a way
invisible you are
when little souls are prey!

God, my Dear God
you know I deeply love you
why do you sometimes
disappear and I don't know you?
