What Why When.......Its Gone Wrong?

You being the almighty power
Dare challenged by no other being
Created him, believed to embody you
With the same power as yours
Looks mystified and in a muzzy!

He puts a seed down on ground
Surrounds by too many weeds
He rears a cow to milk, for feeding young
She faces myriads of problems

He saves little bit from his harvest
To meet difficult time to come
Is robbed and devastated by many
Mice, bugs, beetles and weevils

He attempts to keep his head up
Against all merciless bashes he faces
Nothing doing, he yields to circumstances

Why when where with whose fault
It has gone wrong, you almighty, if I may ask?
Your power or your intention or both
