My God - Poem by khaled Elbalishy

I love HIM more than my parents,
Give me hope, no frustration.
I was born for HIM to be slave,
'be gentle' orders me to behave.
He creates me from nothing,
I thank HIM for His giving everything.
The only one who I can't defy,
The only one who I can't betray.
He is nearer than my vein of heart,
He is the only who I can trust,
He gives me wisdom and power,
but Him I can perform prayer

    Lovely devotional piece of poetry depicting total submission to HIS Will, well articulated and nicely penned with spiritual insight. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply
