Often Heard

Often heard are voices crying
“God, save me from this pain”
Echoed by the cynic’s undying
“You cry out in vain!”
For how can there exist a God
when we hurt and ache this much
Whom then ought we to laud
when the world is bruised as such
We have grown selfish in our suffering
and forgotten the example of Christ
We pray for our own comforting
instead of ourselves sacrificed
