A Futile Search - Philosophical - Poem by Mohammed Asim Nehal

Since ages, the clot of blood
And the bones covered with flesh
Nicely smoothen with skin
Asked the Almighty, Who I am?
And what am I doing on earth?
Show me YOUR signs and
Whom do I worship?
Came no reply for long
And he descended from the mount
And went away to search
Many generations passed
In the darkness and futile work
Wise men questioned and fools followed
Yet no answer, nor any reply
Generation passed and finally they realized
The signs of the Almighty are everywhere
Only those who questioned went astray.

    Good philosophical write.
    But see the fun. God decided to reside our within,
    but also created Maya, this world, the illusion all around,
    He tried His best lead him astray, and still expected to look within to find Him.
    Perhaps, He, God, does not want to make so simple for the poor sod.

    A philosophical poem so profound, Asim ji.
    Man is always questioning and doubting, never realising that the Supreme Self is seated deep within him and
    all around him. The signs of Almighty are within and without - everywhere.
    A meaningful poem that deserves full score.......10

    Generation and creation and evolution of human body always amaze us. There is deep philosophy within. Generation passed and finally they realized. The signs of God are left everywhere. An excellent poem is shared. (Report)Reply

    In the darkness and futile work wise men questioned and fools followed and this provoked thought. Generations passed and later they got answers. An amazing poem is brilliantly penned.10 (Report)Reply
