I Asked God - Poem by Sasivellat Menon

I asked God
What was your purpose,
In creating us humans?
To which, God Said,
To protect the world,
To live in harmony,
To share and give,
With every living being
Not to spread hatred or ill will

But God, It is just the opposite
In everything I see and feel
To which,
God had no answer!

Then I asked the Sky
Why you are so gloomy?
Sky replied to me
In discomfort
Pollutions from Earth
Filling my nostrils
With poisonous gas
I feel sad for those
Who live underneath!
To which, I had no answer

Then I asked the Earth
Why you look so sad?
Earth told me in tears
I feel pity for all
Who live within?
I offered hills & mountains
To protect and preserve,
Rivers for drinking water
Trees to shade them
Earth to cultivate and yield
But all had raped me and
Made me good for nothing
I am worried about my future
Emissions from your factories
Destruction of Hills and Mountains
Thoughtless constructions, all
Will imbalance the climate
Making the heat unbearable
Melting the Ice and rising sea level
Will one day gulp me down?
To infinity!
To which again, I had no answer.


Who to blame?
We alone, Oh! The creator,
Pardon us for our wrong doing
I fainted and grieved
Cried and cried
Fully aware of a catastrophe,
That is very much imminent.

    An intelligent poem...nice personification and a good dialogue with a noble message to all unconscious and sleeping humans. Read mine 'Nature and humans'. It echoes yours... (Report) Reply
