He Is The Almighty! ! ! - Poem by G. Akanji Olaniyi

At first I thought of a special delicacy
But He is neither into appetite nor any cuisine
Then I felt a good wine would do
But He neither gulps nor whets
I was moved to buy a landed piece
But He is mightier than any castle
I checked the lists of the automobiles
Those on the wait would belittle His majesty
He demands no material things
He is the Almighty
Al-kabir! ! !
What He needs is simply to thank Him
For the little, the medium and the large
Those known and unknown
So, I say it my own way:
“Alhamdulillahi- 'Praise be to God'

    Great write. God is in a class of His own. He is too altruistic. Kudos (Report) Reply

    Truly, we should thank The Almighty Lord and that is what He needs to purify our mind, soul and heart. (Report) Reply
