God loves Ants


When you march
fast across the path
dont fail to look
down under the steps
tiny ants queueing up
they stand in a line
and the line moves
they dont speak aloud
but they speak up
disciplined
they are God's most loved ones
they are calm and quite
just obeying his wishes
their only focus
is to labour for food
and multiply for good
they dont think
he thinks for them
they dont plan
he plans for them
all their needs
he kindly seeds
with their deeds

step not upon the silent ants
trample and trusted is killed
God never lets u go
those who pain the weak and vulnerable
those who are innocent and clean
stars look down
Sun stares on
your action speaks upon
your sons and grand ones
what you sow
your grandsons reap
what you kill
torments your grandkids

So,
whenever you cross their path
with due solemnity let them march
honour labour
respect their ardour
adhering to codes
of discipline and modes
they are our own habits
every animal
is moulded into
our nature
sometimes we are slow
sometimes swift
some are fierce
some are soft
and some dignify the ant
Animals are only projected bodies
of what human beings' quality varies..........
