Time to Pray, for the Victims of James Holmes

Time to Pray, for the Victims of James Holmes

Hasan Yahya, former professor of comparative sociology


From Dailymail.co.uk News, London

 Victims of the tragedy caused by James Holmes are received by God for their innocence. The loss of love ones is not comparable to the emotions in our hearts. God give us strength and patience, and fill our hearts with their memories, and open our hearts for mercy and  forgiveness. (Hasan Yahya)

Poems to share


 Emotions are universal,

It strongly, hurts me

To hear about

Burma’s  tragic and planted
massacre in thousands

In Myanmar And Rohingya

In Norway, tens

Of innocents,

And Colorado, USA,

Dozens of innocents,

People die

For unworthy cause

By terminators of tolerance,

freedom, and happy life

Is it the fault of Socialism,

or system of Capitalism?

I wonder

Or is it the world

Goes crazy, insane

Controlled by

Imaginative hate and power?

Is civilization pays the price

For its madness,

Called “progress”?

Is life of humans became so cheap

and priceless?

Is innocence become a crime?

Is having fun in life

became punishable?

God, our small minds

And spoiled (pure) souls are

Getting tired

And exhausted

In both reality and imagination

Help us God

To understand Your Grace

Philosophy of life and death!

Your purpose of human

Existence on earth

To love or otherwise,

To hate and kill each other?

O God, help us

Understand your Mercy,

Your anger,

Your forgiveness

Your power

And your Blessings!


The sun rises everyday


Our hearts, our eyes,

Our souls are directed

Humbly, toward your Grace

Your Mercy, your mightiness

We pray, today

And every time

for every soul, on earth

Innocent before You

May You, God, keep their memories

In the hearts of their families,

friends, and all Americans

As well as all humans

Everywhere on this

Planet earth

Innocents they lived,

Innocents they died

Receive them God,

And cover them with

Your Blessing

God, make Heaven the place,

For them! You are the merciful

For all innocents before your Grace,

“From Dust to Dust”

We all humans know

Give us the strength

To understand

I wish death to the Intruder

Would bring the love ones back

But, all of us were born

To die and return to

The immortal God

Our Savior, our Haven

To keep us free of fear,

Free of anger

Free of revenge

Open our hearts wide

For patience

And forgiveness

Like anybody else, all are immortal

We surely, know this fact,

But impossibility of return to life

May bring forgiveness in hearts

And refresh the lost ones

The flying souls

In Your Heaven

Their memories in hearts

The hearts of their

Love ones, Dad, Mom,

Uncle, brother, sister

And friend

God forgive the innocent

Like birds fly in Heaven

God have mercy on them

And Makes Comfort to

Their loved ones to

Accommodate their hearts

for forgiveness And give them

persevere for patience

and forgiveness

We remember the smiles,

The laughter’s, the pretty faces

Of our love ones

We’ll never forget

What’s hard to forgive


Tickets to Movies,

Tickets to Heaven

No one ever thought

Or imagine,

It may happen

It’s not our fault

To be human

Our spirits race

With our flesh

An heart full of emotions

How can we cope with monsters

In the bottom of our hearts

When they fight with angels

Roving with their wings

Lightly whispering Your Glory

In Heaven

God give us the strength

How we cope with

Laughter and pain

Revenge  and forgiveness

Love and hate

Tolerance and anger

We need the power of God

To Guide our emotions

To give us the power of patience

The power of coping

With human hearts pain


Humans we are

Humans will remain

We know the birth time,

But never know to die

When or where

No one ever been mortal

In the past

Death has one face

But too many causes

We may die in normal causes

We might die in accident,

We may die in highways,

We might die in bed

We may die in cancer

We might die,  ……

In unlimited list of places

And possible causes

Never thought to die innocents

Having fun, watching movies

God, we need your help

To Cope, to understand

Your blessing

Help us, God

What makes sorrow

Unbearable is

Dying innocent with

No reason or guilt

We wish death penalty

to the intruder

But can death bring back

The love ones who had tickets

to movie, replaced by tickets

To Heaven

God, help us to understand

Why you miss up

Sometimes. Some may think,

But you are the ONLY One

Who has purpose

Of creating humans,

Devils, and angels

Day and Night,

Heavens and earth

Love and hate

Anger and happiness

Revenge and forgiveness

We look very small

Very sad, very helpless

God,  before unexpected



God spare our lost minds

And may be our souls

In this material world

All things are mixed up

In our hearts,

In our minds,

All things crowded

Together in a moment

Have no boundaries

Have no colors

Have no limits,

Have no life,

Have no sense

But our faith in You,

Will never perished

And for your Glory

And blessing

We all in serious need

To Bless our love ones

God….. God….. God


God, help us find our way

To protect our nation,

Our young, our people,

And our love ones


God, help us to protect

Ourselves from terror

From hate,

From selfishness,

From greediness,

From fame, glory,

And false reputation

Mixed with blood.


God, help us

You are our ONLY

refuge to lean on


God, what’s the sin

Of a young girl,

Young man,

Old man or woman,

To face random bullet

in an unlucky day

From a person,

Set aside his heart

And soul while committing

The horrible crime

Against his fellow citizens

Against humanity?


God forgive us

for our mistakes

In rearing our children

And teaching them

Using the wrong methods

To tech them

How to love each other?

How to value human life?

As a prime goal

In learning

God, make us

overcome our sadness

our imperfectness

our weak emotions

and open our hearts for

forgivenes, tolerance,

love, and caring

God the ONLY Listener

The ONLY Powerful

the ONLY Savior.

Poems reflect the inner heart feelings of the author sharing the victim’s relatives and their love ones died in the shooting as a token emotional contribution, sharing and caring.

God Bless All, God Bless America!
