Another Day

A woman mourns the death of her husband killed in the
Mumbai bombings.


The only unbelievable thing is that nothing is
Another day. 
Another 183 lives struck from fulfilling their
Another 183 utterly unique personal stories ended.
Another 183 relatives and friends of those murdered
left empty,
   their hollow shells filling with questions and
sadness and unimaginable sorrow.
Another day.
The only unbelievable thing is that nothing is
And always so, another day.
Like days passed through the millennia.
Man’s utter brutality to
man continues to amaze
   as though it were some
But surely the god I pray to and the god they pray
   (whoever they may be)
   are one and the same?
Yet, another day.
Another 183 people added to the tally of man’s cruelty
to man.
The only unbelievable thing is that nothing is

    ppl will soon forget about this. esp in these non-western terrorist attack-prone countries.
    ryc: that means you’re totally canadian? i think you’ve got a british appearance and i perceive that you are writing in a british style and speaking british english…haha…it’s a kind of obsession to me

    we are so lucky (in North America) to be so detached from tragedy like this on a day to day basis. It’s a mad crazy world out there, and the craziness gets louder (and closer) everyday.

  7. ryc:  no worries.

    Another case of unpredictability and cruelty in life…ryc – thanks for your story. It was really insightful, and gives me some courage now knowing that things usually turn out better than imagined…

    Unbelievable! And kunhuo42 comment is just as unbelievable. I don’t believe any god reward anyone for taking another’s life. One of the reaons I oppose the death penalty. Somehow our mixed up world seems more events like the above happening.
    RYC: I think it is time to run off to an exotic place——-for good!!!!

  10. awwso how are you today?=]

    that’s really tragic. sigh… reminds me of another tragic event a friend called my attention to — not as broad in scope, but horrible in its pointlessness. an older couple was at a park in hawaii and were enjoying the evening, having just received a call from their daughter who had left home earlier that day and had safely arrived in california. meanwhile, a guy, for no really good reason, caught a cab up to the same park, and then tried to rob the cab driver and shot the driver. then he went over to the couple and robbed them too, and then shot and killed them for no reason at all. i don’t understand senseless killing, or even killing for some higher purpose. what god would ever reward someone for ending the life of another?

  12. …wowi like the ‘the only unbelievable thing is that nothing is unbelievable’makes a really good endingT_T
