What is the point?

What is the point of making a bomb?

Of laying it at the feet of the young and the innocent?

What is the point of this cowardly act?

Of the destruction, injury and death?

What is the point of creating fear

During a time of family fun and togetherness

What is the point?

What point are you trying to make with the death of a child?

A child with a message of peace

What is the point of this senseless act?

The loss, the pain, the terror

What is the point?

Because I don’t see,

I don’t understand

And if I, as an adult, don’t understand

How do I explain the unexplainable to my child?

A child only two years younger

Than the innocent boy who died



What is the point?

In honour of those who lost their lives in the Boston tragedy and in tribute to the Emergency Services men and women and civilians who ran into the fray to help the injured.

  • If people are so brainwashed that they feel so compelled to build and explode bombs why are they also brainwashed to maim and kill others, not just themselves if they are depressed wnough to do it.


  • There is no point to those of us who have our sanity. The religious zealous are the ones you need to ask. They claim to be doing it on Gods behalf, to cleanse the world. Really?!?! The God I know wouldn’t want any of this


  • Wow, what an excellent poem. Why exactly. And how do you explain it to children. It doesn’t make sense to me, so how can it make sense to a child?!
