God were where you? 

God of justice and mercy – God who sees the sparrow fall –
where were you when pitiless men
broke down the doors of safe rooms that were no longer safe?
Where were you God?
Now, as Rachel weeps for her children, where are you?
As those in power exact terrible revenge, where are you?
When brutalized generations grew up as angry children
in an unsafe world – while power games played out –
where were we?
