O, Son Of God! - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

“Make not my Father’s house
An house of merchandise”…
John- 2: 16

O Son of God!
Ever since thou left us,
We have made this world,
Thy Father’s house,
A house of merchandise!

To appease our weapon interests
We created belligerence
Built distrust fought wars
Sold hatred in exchange
Of doves of peace

When dost thou come down?
Once again amongst us
To demolish this temple this body
Where greed presides,
Just as thou destroyed
Thy body on cross
Along with all our sins!

When dost thou come down?
To rebuild a house of no hate
Just as thou proved thy words that
Thou wilt raise it up in three days
And just as thou resurrected
As thou promised!

    a fitting appeal from a world so forgetful of kindness and love; caught in amassing more for oneself than the other person (Report) Reply

    a very thought provoking poem, Kesav, and very timely too. you begin with despair, angst and frustration at what man has done to himself, and plead for resurrection.
    Tagore Wrote, as long as a child is born, it proves God is not yet disappointed in man.
    that was a long time ago, I wonder if its still relevant. i share your anguish and hope your prayers are answered. I sincerely join you in your prayers.

    Meery Xmas and a happy new year.

    Regards
    Mamta

    As always, your poems address greater truths and in this context, I would like to mention that your understanding of Christianity and its tenets is remarkable. A very reflective poem of how the Lord died for the deeds of others and resurrected later to show the world that love conquers all. Excellent rendition of the poem. Thanks, mandara (Report) Reply
