Theme: Perception

God and Me

He has always been elusive to me
But they say he lives in ordinary souls
Even in mundane mortals like me
Is that true? I don’t know
 
You don’t know how to satisfy him
Because the good always suffer
While the wicked invariably flourish
They say it is your Fate
 
Fate makes you feel happy
Sometimes through your success
But, instantly he brings you
Suffering without a reason
 
I can’t reason out why such
Omnipresent and omnipotent
Are so quirky and cruel
Without giving reason or logic
 
For knowing the logic
You are not supposed to question
His existence since he
Likes surrender and not suspicion
 
Stranger are his ways
Of Justice on many occasions
Still stranger are his ways of
Justifying his injustice
 
Yet everyone goes to Him
For pelf, peace and favor
Sorry, that shows not his power
But how helpless we are

Comment Very beautifully expressed! We may blame the almighty for things going wrong but the reality has very rightly been portrayed in last two lines.
