The poem, Wonder, written by Martin Freier

“WONDERING
Written by Martin Freier
Wondering why
The sun in the sky
Makes each day
A new day.
Why do the moon and stars
Light up the sky at night?
Wondering why
In all this beauty
And plenty
There’s still no Justice or
Liberty.
Why is there so much
Inhumanity?
Why are so many
Of our brethren ill fed,
Just left in the gutter
Lying dead?
Is there a need
To question
Your neighbor’s creed,
While the innocent bleed?
Amid this God’s creation of
Wonder,
Why do we allow
Wars and plunder
And missiles that kill
With their thunder.
I keep wondering
Whether mankind will ever
Unite
In a common cause that is
Right,
So that children can sleep at
Night.
Will there ever be an end to
Strife
And the taking of innocent life?”
