i have tasted the evil

one image
a thousand words?
this image breaks my heart
tears flowing
one image
my heart breaking
because the image is so true
i have tasted the evil
i have witnessed it with my own eyes
Lord, why are you silent?
hear the cries of my heart
hear the cries of her heart
Oh Compassionate One
this cannot be what you intend
the consumption of human flesh
the eating of our young
Created in Your Image
the travesty is indescribable
my heart hardens
i am without mercy
open the eyes of my heart
Lord God Almighty
El Shaddai
i am tempted by evil
tempted to vengeance
protect me from my acrid rage
be with me in my trouble
rescue her
rescue me

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble.  I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” Psalm 91:14-16 NLT
