I knew a young man,
Energetic and ambitious!
He grew up in struggle,
Like in mud grows a lotus!!
He had big dreams for himself,
And ahead he went with full steam!
But he always used to wonder,
Why the world is so extreme??
At times he saw people confused,
Worrying about what ‘all‘ to eat?
Yet at other times he saw the poor,
Wondering about ‘what‘ to eat??
He could never understand,
How could this be even possible?
If all are children of the same God,
How can one, and other not be special??
He used to think in disbelief,
Why doesn’t God do anything?
If he has all the power,
For what is he waiting??
One night in his dream he saw God,
He asked how can this be true?
There is so much misery around,
Why doesn’t He come to the rescue??
God said He has done his work,
The man asked, “What did you DO?”
To this God laughed and said,
“Can’t you see my child, I sent YOU !!”
this one depicts our society the way it is….but its motivating and inspiring nontheless!!!!
A very well written poem Sumit.
My personal belief too is that GOD works in indirect ways. Krishna said in the Geeta that our primary “dharm” is to act. if we do something about the change that we want to bring about, help will be provided to us. That’s how God works.
That is why inequality exists. Because some people DO while others DONT.
Yes, Anuraag.. I completely agree
Well…I am not a believer of God….but this sure is inspiring!
Motivating poem. well written.
Very true he sent us 🙂 nicely written…
