Then, Why Do People Forget God?


Not a single plant or twig or leaf can grow
From nothingness or on its own;
Not a single bud can blossom, flower or seed
Without the nod from Maker God!

Not a single embryo forms de novo
Except by fusion of germ cells;
Not a single baby born can reach old age
Without the blessings of the Lord.

Not a single event in this universe
Can happen without God’s knowledge;
Not a single hair can grow or fall from scalp
Without the Maker knowing it!

All things were made for man by love of Creator;
All that He made were good only;
When Nature’s furies take lives by the scores,
Then, why do people forget God?

No man can do a thing all on his own;
No man can create life from lifeless clay;
No man predicts the sun or winds or rain;
Then, why do people forget God?

Billions are atheists, trusting in their science;
Billions do not believe in conscience;
Billions worship idols, man-made and shaped;
Shouldn’t you pray to a living, loving, caring God?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
