while the fire breathing birds plunge into the tall trees

i lifted my head to the heavens

looking at the  Sun (God) and asking him why

but i got no answer from the great sun

 

as i saw the sun 's children

the sunflowers jumped to their demise

i kneeled down to pray

for the salvation of their souls

 

 

i wondered about the  pilots of the birds

and i felt hatred and diguist for them

and wished them eterntiy in hell's furnace

but then i covered my face with ash and repented

for i know if i didn't i'll meet them in the furnace of hell

 

i saw little sunflower seeds

crying and weeping for the  sunflowers

their tears seemed like water coming from a rain storm

but then i saw the sun come out

and dried out the tears of the seeds

and i thank the sun for new sunflowers grew

 

 

 six years later as i remember  the destruction of the trees

and the deaths of the flowers

i look back and remember not with sadness and anger

but with a sense of forgivness and peace

and as the tears come upon me

i know they are with sun( our lord jesus) in the heavens

 

and we left on earth six long years later

now must begin this new era with hop and forgivness

and remember the sunflowers with love

and have God's peace in us

for this what they wanted
