An Offering - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
Give me the strength
To move further away
From where I am
And plant my foot firmly
On the top soil
And then grow deeper roots.
Give me the vision
To recognize my weaknesses
And the strength to conquer them
While staying firm footed
In face of hostile adversaries.
Let the seed
Of goodness sprout within me
Grow steadily unhindered
Outspread its branches
Grow flowers and fruits
So that I can place them before you
As my humble or maybe silly offerings.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
However, what we require to ponder upon is whether God who is omnipotent requires such offering?
