The Search For Human - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

When everyone on earth is in search of God
God himself set out on a mission in search of human
A relentless journey He undertook
Unmindful of times and distances
Puzzled and perplexed, fortunate some
Questioned God the essence of real human
Quipped the God with an enchanting smile
His search would end on finding a person
He who matches his actions with his thoughts
He who discriminates never the needs of a pauper and king
He who undergoes miseries and pleasures with same attitude
He who considers the needs of others more than his own
He who loves one and all without any bias
He who forsakes everything for truth and principles
He who finds the God in the well being of all living things
Such is the person my search is on for
The search will end on finding such person

    Maybe He will stop and go home if the search ends. Let Him search to find more than one. Beautiful poem. (Report) Reply
