If God created all we see
then ours is still a timeless cry;
we cannot understand God's sense;
we ask again the reason why.

Was this prefigured by a cross,
this site of human agony;
the tumbled timbers, broken walls,
where people struggle to be free?

This cannot be the way of God,
yet God is in this quaking mess,
is in the people crying out
in pain and terminal distress.
