Lament

There will always be suffering in the world, always death. The cries of bereaved children will never be silenced; the slaughter of animals will never cease.

And God will listen to the cries and watch the slaughter, as he always has, with indifference.

And for what exactly, am I supposed to pray? Salvation? Redemption?

Neither is to be found in this, the best of all possible worlds.
