When Why Has No Answer by Raymond A. Foss

Not in capriciousness
the randomness of fate
but when why has no answer
how we all can truly relate

Wondering with Job
how pain, struggle can be
when we try to walk righteously
repenting of our sin

Nothing we can comprehend
the forces in the world
leading some to suffer
and some to reap corrupt gain

The walk on this earth
far from the garden where we began
faith alone sustaining us
until we return to our heavenly home

Answering the Clay

The potter spoke
out of the whirlwind
answering the claim
rebuking his claims
the demands he dared to speak

A reminder, the distance to God
how far below
is the home of man

Walking in the dust
rather than riding the clouds
Marveling at the works
of His majestic hands

& the poem, “His Comeuppance”, posted
to FaithWriters.com 5/26/2010,
both based in part on
