Sonnet: God Is Foremost - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Abandon God and you surely perish;
All wealth however earned, you tend to leave;
How much of food can your taste-buds relish?
In truth and labor, destiny you weave.

Do not covet thy neighbor’s fast-track wealth;
The slanderers will suddenly cease- all!
More than body, important is soul’s health;
God never lets the righteous ones to fall.

All things take place as per the words of God;
In wealthy times, most men do lose their sense;
Remember man, you’re made of only clod!
More than a man, God is your best defense.

So, put your trust in God wholeheartedly,
And climb life’s ladder most courageously.
