Give me a piece of your body 
before you go. 
A tooth, a nail, a curled hair. 
A relic, my sadness wants to keep. 

By your absence I will live 
in the bones of tangled bodies, 
who were shot down on their tracks 
under the sun, eyes apart. 

The trembling does not stop. 
Bread loaves were lying uneaten. 
Wailing rises, reaching a crescendo. 
Blood splattered soil, my hands collect 

for god, to show a dirty game, 
when I meet him as a witness. 
Wanting to know, why not the right to live 
was the most sacred thing?

To God all life is precious...surely He abhors bloody atrocities more than you or i can even fathom...these are man's choices.  Those who truly follow Jesus would never shed blood, for God asks us to forgive and turn the other cheek.  Not all men however choose God or His ways..


Your poem seems to depict those men who reject God.


I think your words make a good argument for embracing the Lord and His ways.


Excellent use of language and imagery...very effective and moving poetry.
