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

I’m caught between the devil and deep sea!
My earthly tormentors cry for my blood;
I am a ‘one man army’ really!
A sacrificial-lamb desiring good.

Should I protect myself the earthly way?
Should I hit at my enemies hard who throng?
Should I accept my punishments and pray?
Should I forgive the ones who do me wrong?

O God, my foes prepare a joint attack;
My human strength could fail me any time;
O God, if you just stand behind my back,
No one would dare to harm me in the prime.

So, be my protector O God, I pray!
And guide me on the road to Heaven’s way!
