Good And Bad - Poem by Asif Andalib

Good are the things
That are proved to be helpful
Bad are the things
That are proved to be harmful
God knows best
What is good for us
And what is bad for us!
That’s why
We should listen to God.

In the eyes of God:
Good work is ten times better
Than bad work
Good work is like gold
And bad work is like cotton

Bad is an inseparable part of God
Just like good is!
God’s body is the Best
And Satan is the worst.

The closer we are to the Best
The luckier we are
The stronger we are
The better we are to the rest.

    The concept put across in the poem is both interesting and thought provoking!
    Good deeds shall always out weigh the bad!

    Although I do not have belief in God, some features of good and bad are very well defined in your poem, in a way that any could read and understand- something that is always too underrated. (Report)Reply

    The concept/philosophy that you share in Stanza 2, is intuiging...The piece itself, as a whole, is unique, as it rings of a parablesque style...I like it...IIT IS GOOD...NO WAY BAD! ! ! Solid Work, Asif.

    Please answer this Question Asif.
    'Can anyone justify taking the life at random of innocent people because they do not wish to accept certain creed and way of life? '.
    Yes or no?
    Also do you think that it is possible for an individual to chose his own way of life and religion then live in harmony with others.
    Peace,
    Sid.
