Funny how we ask God

why there's sin,

and bombings, and miscarriages

and cancer;

how we ask God

"Why" about these things

as if we should expect better.

But we never ask God

Why there's music

and a baby's first smile

and daffodils in spring.

Funny how we never ask God

why these things exist;

because we deserve far worse.

Funny that.
