The enemy came to bring death in the name of Allah,
They took intermissions to spare a few Muslims,
Others were not shown the same sympathy,
Their bullets picked the creed, race or age,
They came to kill for a higher cause and for a thousand virgins,
Lives, hopes and dreams shattered by a few,
In the name of a God they claim to know.
The nation turned to God for strength and resilience,
Multitude of prayers and pleas beamed up to the heavens,
The people needed their God to come down and carry them,
And God sent angels to come and rescue them,
Anger filled the hearts of the bereaved and they acted upon it,
Why should they be spared and not our beloved ones?
We want justice and we want it now.
Really? Time for a reality check
God who created the skies and the birds does not destroy,
God who created family, laughter and celebrations does not bring so much suffering,
God who created a resilient Kenyan people does not condone violence,
God is great, greater than what we imagine and see,
He does not take sides nor bless the death of so many,
He does not go slack on the job, follow His ego or think narrowly,
Man does, man can do all this.
It is man who destroys, kills, breaks families and brings pain,
It is man who decides to spend God given resources on leaders and not security,
It is man who can steal from you and claim to stand by you in troubling times,
It is man who went into the mall and killed everyone in sight,
It is man who blatantly shot at kids to avenge the death of others,
It is man who decides to use the name of God for personal gain,
It is man that destroys man.
But it is the same man who ran into the mall and saved people,
It is the same man who volunteered to carry victims to safety,
It is the same man who came out and donated blood for strangers,
It is the same man who gave money for bills they will never see,
It is the same man who beamed prayers for a country that never gives back,
Man can bring about so much joy and so much pain,
And man can also choose to follow and hear from the right God.
The debate about religion should never exist,
It should not be about which creed is responsible for the attack,
God gave us life to do as we please with it,
Man took that greatness and used it for himself,
We got here as a result of manly choices, manly greed and manly ego’s,
The One True God saves, delivers and redeems all,
God is life, God is love and we must respect that.
LEAVE RELIGION OUT OF IT!!!!
