So Many Questions, So Little Answers

How do you sleep at night?
Knowing that you've made ladies widows,
Men widowers,
Children orpahns,
And parents childless?
How do you wake up one morning,
And think,
Let's kill some people today?
I don't even want to know how your crooked minds work.
You destroyed monuments,
You destroyed people's hard work,
But you didn't succeed,
And destroy hope.
You obviously meant to put terror in our hearts,
But God overcame the terror,
And put hope instead.
I'll never understand what makes you want to kill,
But I will look forward to the day when you get down
on your knees,
And beg for forgiveness from our awesome God.
Then we will see who has more terror in their hearts.
Jesus forgives you,
I forgive you,
But how do you forgive yourselves?
That I will never know,
The only thing I can think of is through Jesus.
I hope and pray that one day you will see how much
pain you caused.
