UNDERSTANDING?


I understand that two young children were swept out to sea.
They were playing on the sand in Norfolk.
I understand that their parents have been brave
And are trying to start a new life without them.
I understand.

I understand that a colleague's son was murdered
Two hundred miles away from his home.
I understand that they are trying to forgive the murderer.
I understand.

I understand that a headmaster was stabbed to death
Trying to protect one of his pupils.
I understand his wife feels sadness for the murderer.
I understand.

I understand a madman murdered innocent children
In a Scottish school.
I understand the community are still grieving.
I understand.

I understand my anger.
I understand a great many things,
But what I don't understand is WHY.
