Sonnet: When Earthly Travail Come…
An accident just opens eyes of man,
And warns of more untoward serious things
That future brings, curtailing one’s life-span,
Unless, more careful lives we lead, earthlings!
A disease warns- ‘Immunity is weak! ’
The stress of life has sure a role to play;
To aid of remedies, man must then seek
And tread in spirituality- God’s way!
Much strife too comes, heralding warning signs
Of life afilled with mortal sins galore:
For help of God, the afflicted then pines,
While purity of soul, God insists more!
Heaven allows travail in life on earth,
To goad more souls to seek eternal mirth!
