I, an ordinary human being
Implore to you, the Supreme Being
To bless us with..
Some sensibility & empathy
To be more tolerant than what we are
Even though not always possible
To try to our utmost
In spite of being fallible.
We aren’t you, My Lord
We lack in capacity as well as capability
You, dear God being omnipotent
Can set things aright
Am I not right in saying so, my dear God?
You prefer to just watch
When in a mare’s nest we are tricked into
You, who is invincible can turn the tables
Something makes you immobile, isn’t it?
Is there treachery in your kingdom too?
Will your action have repercussions?
Does revenge exist in heaven also?
Forgive me for questioning you, my Lord
I don’t mean to offend you
Being a human being..
I can’t help, but think in this way
Tell me, good Lord
Why don’t you help us in the hour of our utmost need
When all is in your hands?
Terrible situations, at times, just pop up without prior notice
Through crafty cunning plans of revenge
The innocent are entrapped
An extremely heavy price we must pay for no fault of ours
Dear God, does it mean craftiness is the way to live?
Should all of us lead a life of selfish mean avengers?
Think, dear God..
What will happen to your beautiful world
That still has some honest humans?
Don’t you think..
They too will sooner or later adopt..
The sly, egocentric life, thinking..
If they don’t..
Their life will be no better than a hell on earth
Don’t you think they will lose faith in you, dear God?
Would this make you happy, my Lord
Personally, I very much doubt it
You love all your creations with no distinctions
So, please dear God I plead with you
To kindly help the guiltless victim
Undoubtedly you will want to punish the wrongdoer
But that can wait
First & foremost I earnestly beseech you to extricate the prey from..
The web of untold sufferings
The agony of one person isn’t restricted to him/ her alone
As you are very much aware–
It will, in fact, destroy the life of..
All the near & dear ones
Dear God, if you are still going to be..
A silent onlooker
Then we don’t know who to trust & have faith in &
Who not to trust?
A precarious situation indeed it is!
Please, therefore, I solemnly implore you
Kindly help us before it’s too late.
Please forgive me if I’ve been rude
I didn’t mean to, as you probably very well know
This predicament forced me with this query
I’ll be anxiously waiting for your response
We are extremely short of time
Thank you, dear God, for listening to me so very patiently
‘May the great Lord be praised for gifting us this precious life &
Hopefully, we won’t ever humiliate both God & Life by our actions.’
