Not My Choosing - Poem by RAJ NANDY

I had existed beyond time and space,
In a dimension which was divine,
Till you brought me here,
And said this world was mine!

With passing of each year,
I get closer to THEE,
For it is YOU, who have brought me here,
It is YOU, who must set me free!

I never came of my own choosing,
YOU only decided my fate,
And placed my soul within
This skeletal human frame !

Now with the approaching years,
My soul yearns to be free,
For YOU have brought me here,
It is YOU, who must set me free!

    It is a very nice prayer common to you and me. Let me join in your prayers for freeing my soul too. (Report) Reply
