Feedback: Wave of Sorrow

I give my gratitude to you for drawing from your depth and crystallizing the agony and beauty of the suffering of Ethiopia so that I can experience the profoundness of their suffering through your imagery, rhythm and metaphors.
Honour is bestowed on those that suffer to such a great depth. The magnitude of the meaning /feeling of their circumstance - of our admiration and compassion for them.
Why do we love the deep painful songs the most? What do they do to us?
The significance of your use of “Blessed” in contrast to what, in the usual sense, we would consider the opposite of “Blessed” yet where is the truth? Are the ones who are the opportunity more blessed than those responding to the opportunity (giving for the good of others)?
Is that which is needed to save us our destruction (rain/relief) or is that which is destroying us (agony) our salvation?
Is pain and sorrow the thin veil between us, each other and God.
