Could the Philanthropists avoid pain?
Is the pain the penalty for sins?
Years have gone, the same concept still continues,
The pain of the heart or the soul or the skin,
Living things are fragile, just protected by cells,
Invaders are there with the weapons to drill,
Sins are the prohibited actions not only religious,
Also Biological, psychological and political,
Beware of the invaders, waiting just outside,
Holding the weapons to dissolve the solute,
Hibernating for years for the right host and textures,
It may be you and I who has to suffer,
Though we gulp the supplemental elixir rituals,
Who has done this research to connect the actions with pain?
Infection and infected are the witness, not the conclusion,
After the discovery of antibiotic patriot to attack the specifics,
When we are in pain, still we say what we had done to be vain,
Once we are cured, the pain is gone and we always thank the God,
What a mess we are in! Our rational and religious thoughts,
Not match with each other to prove a point!
We are in a mess! Don’t hurt someone when they are in pain.
Dissecting their souls to retrieve the karmic acts to blame,
We have to die one day and we go off with moderate or severe pain.
