A Christian Poem about 9/11

The following is an excerpt from chapter 17 of the September 11th Epic Poem. The complete poem is 2,000 lines long and has 1,499 rhyming pairs. It was written betwen June 2008 and May 2010.
A human brain destroyed by pain
            Will often gripe at God,
Who must have guilt because He built
            A world that’s clearly flawed.
In times of grief there’s no relief
            In other people’s bliss:
It makes the curse just that much worse
            For those who go through this.
But God above has proved his love
            By planning an escape:
To fix in full the damaged soul
            That’s scarred by Satan’s rape.            
Like firemen responding when
            They hear a victim’s voice,
So God will rush to people crushed
            By someone else’s choice.
He’s not to blame that humans maim
            Their brothers and their friends.
Or that we choose to often use
            His gifts for selfish ends.
We’ve all been born in hate and scorn,
            As captives to our sin;[22]
But God who’s fair will take good care
            Of those who let Him win.
The deeds we’ve done beneath the sun
            Are filled with hate and vice.
Where justice stands the law demands
            That someone pays the price.
The laws decree a penalty
             Your heart knows very well:
That in the end you’ll have to spend
            Eternity in hell.
