A God's Prayer
by Nandakumar Nayar
Bookmark and Share
  You look to me with despair in your eyes
Worries and fears crease your weary face
You look to me for salvation, but I shall not grant
For the answer is nowhere else but in your heart

When you chose to be born on this Earth
You were certain you would accomplish the reason for your birth
As the days went by and you slowly slipped away
Into the shadowy pleasures that are holding you a-sway
You forgot who you really are, what you really are
You brush away the thoughts that rise
Telling you that you are as immortal as the breeze
When the brain is dead, the lights go off in your head
Not the light in your heart; for it glows on, even after your body is dead

Now when the time has come for you to return to me
You dread and fear, and beg and plead saying there’s more for you to see
You trade the diamond of immortality, for these glitter coated beads of glass
So come back to me my child, realize who you are
For there is only but one place, that can keep you from misery a-far
The six senses were just illusory; they never were the ties that bind
So strongly, it’s just all in the mind
Let go my child, come floating back to me

Your relatives and friends that you have known to be
Just so full of themselves, with nothing but hypocrisy and jealousy
The few who were true were those that I had placed near you
They were angels who were helping you, to see you through
Nothing in my entire creation is bad; all these are but perceived
They harm and kill but all to what each soul set out to achieve
So then should murderers and thieves and charlatans be left unpunished?
But just what can you punish?
Just the body, not the mind and not the soul

For until the soul is not healed, evil doings will spout forth
The restless soul in search of peace continue to manifest as a body or a ghost
Reach out to me my children, for although salvation I shan’t grant
I will show you the way to the fountainhead of all knowledge that is deep in your heart
For love is the answer, love is the key, love for all, that’s the truth, from eternity
Give love and get love, sow hatred and reap hatred and it’s not me
That punishes you; it’s but you and your deeds
For when you look to me for salvation, I shall not grant
For the answer is nowhere else, but in your heart
