The entire book is poetic. Lamentations expresses the people’s overwhelming sense of loss that accompanied the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, as the exile of Judah’s inhabitants from he land Yahweh had covenanted to give Israel as a homeland. In the beginning of the book it begins with Lament and ends with an appeal to the Lord for
restoration. In the middle of the book, the Lamentations it focuses on the goodness of God. He is the Lord of hoe, of love, of faithfulness, of salvation and restoration. His compassions never fails. They are new every morning, great is his faithfulness. At the end of Lamentations faith rises from Jerusalem’s condition to acknowledge the Lords eternal reign. .
