Are You Loyal To God?


A theft is not a theft
If man commits it
On plants and animals.

It’s not a robbery
When it is employed
On plants and animals.

A kill is not a kill
If it is inflicted
On plants and animals.

Thefts, robberies and kill
Are so among humans,
All religions profess.

You cannot please the God
By harming other lives,
Which too are His products.

You cannot lead a life
Without these, and with these
You aren’t loyal to Him.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
