Is There A God?
(Dedicated to universal self-realization – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
Even a blind appreciates incessant presence of God!
As father God helps us to be on Earth
As mother carries us in the womb for nine months
As parents care for us as New Born
As family guides us to grow under protection
As neighbours welcome us to the union
As teachers prepare us for worldly vocations
As labourers produce and deliver goods for consumptions!
As clouds bring us rains to fill ponds and rivers
As nature makes us thinkers and philosophers
As birds of heaven invite us to be wanderers
Give us peace of mind as soldiers and fire fighters!
Bring distances closer as flight crew, boatmen, and drivers
Advances our knowledge base as researchers
Delight our faces as chefs and waiters
Carry our belongings with care as movers!
As pets arouse loving care without gain of return
As friends become companion of selfless actions
As opponents test limit of egocentric behaviours
Giving us ecstasy or melancholy as winners or losers!
As we marry, beget children with cheers and tears
God is always in and around in some form or other
Just waiting to be recognized with vision clear!
God comes to the hospital bed
As doctor, nurse, and all night attendant!
Suddenly appears when we are lost or need help
Makes us wonder about unknown coincidence!
As Earth gives us home of enchantment
As Sun serves us without rest and breaks
Takes us to new home of transcendental waves -
The moment heart stops and soul evaporates!
God’s loving expression touches everyone, rich or poor
Enlightens Prophets and Messiahs more as tuned (willing) receivers
Most things on Earth can’t help but embracing God
Even the violent Crusaders and worshipers of deadly Cross!
When religions coexist, leaders
communicate, media respect neutrality, laws not blinded by immunity, and
citizens' needs take precedence over profitability - peace becomes reality,
world lives in harmony appreciating Human Rights - Kolki
