A Mysterious Murder


Everyday
In our society
Murder is everywhere;
Leaving the family
Without a nurturing father
'Cause of a mysterious murder.

I pray for the children,
For the victims of crime,
And for those who seek justice
To heal the unbearable pain
In their wounded hearts
That they may able to forgive.

Although a mysterious murder
Keeps a mad family member
To make a vengence or a revenge,
I wish they may able to cope in life,
To love their enemies though it's hard
And to make God a center in their life.

I wish and pray
A murder mystery
That stains a blood for a lifetime
And that brought many tears to every
Family in the world in the past and today
May be replaced by forgiveness and love.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
