Sonnet: God Protects All Righteous Men - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

No force on earth however big can harm
An upright man if God vouchsafes for him;
The seeds he sows grow well in his small farm;
No evil man can turn his life too grim.

The eyes of God are fixed upon good men;
He watches them with care ev’n before birth;
No lions can attack them in their den;
He longs to give them everlasting mirth.

And yet, the world thinks it can play the fool,
And have vengeance on righteous man on earth;
Their every woe, God watches albeit cool;
No one can put the flame off in their hearth.

When God’s for Truth, Truth only will triumph;
There is no camel without any hump!
