God; This Is You - Poem by Obute Gabriel

I’ve wallowed round the surface of the earth
And found that knowledge of my existence is very minute
The more I’ve tried to impart ideas
The farther I discovered unprecedented works
Theories behind ideas
For all things I’ve done was an imitation of an existence somewhere
This has shown my limitation and incompetence even if I’ve tried.


Mystery! ! !
How I wonder were you are
Far above the universe
Still reaches us closer than our hands
Thy works has justified thy existence
The beauty of creation has shown how beautiful you’ve always look
I’ve pondered how the cloud and skies are imaginarily swept
Birds hover around the world with beautiful songs
I’ve wonder what more songs can be sweeter than the song of praise
Umm………. Amazingly, all things are performing its function by the day without any reminder
Working together for good
As it were created to do


Oh! Mystery
How are thou?
You are everywhere at the same time
You never slumber nor sleep, nor weary of the things you do
The only creature that was not created
I’ve craved for your understanding
But still difficult to find
Now I have solely rest my case
All to depend on you
For all things are possible in you
Mystery.
