! God! Take Me In Your Hands Poem by Rema Prasanaa

! God! Take Me In Your Hands

Rating: 3.0

I came to your abode God,
my glockenspiel loud to wake you up
my mind in manacle, realized
not your gentle demeanors
my gonfalon, emblazoned
golden lines read addendum of
my grievances and greed
there no prayers on my lips
to praise you and you gazed at me
your smile effulgent pierced
my huge equipage and
to reform me I admit
never you listened my cries

I am there near your sanctum God
again and in my hand folds
offer a prayer to praise your clemency
realize my mind now
you only can calm me down
attune my strings of life to praise
your divine aureole, allow me
to grace your axioms in my gasp
take me in your arm, care me
earth caves underneath, meridian breaks
hold me safe in your heart and
lift me to your paradise...

(Inspired by Tagor's Sagarika)

God is truly great though it just sometimes happens that we as humans are unable to understand his ways as they are strange. However we still need to not let that faith we have in him get shattered as he created us and will save us from drowning too.

A very touching prayer, meaningful. Some big words like glockenspiel slowed the reading. But is a worth preserving piece. sathya narayana

I like Tagor very much, read his works in my language, he is so spiritual, inspiring, humane, mood and mind lightening author. I am so glad to find a lot of his style in your works, Rema!

Reema, it is really nice to know that the universal poet Tagore inspired you to write this prayer of thanks giving & also invoking Gods divine blessings! The first para reminded me of those Latin prayers sung by the monks in the Catholic church! I am now trying to put the history of Medieval Philosophy in verse! -Raj Nandy
