Sonnet: Just Think Awhile, Man - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Tho’ Hercules or Samson, one must die!
And leave the world after God-granted time;
But there aren’t many things in which we vie;
Each one must try to make his life sublime.

Our strength will fail us one day while on earth;
Our beauty cannot stay as such for long;
We can’t maintain forev’r a youthful girth;
Some day surely it ends our earthly-song!

Yet, happy is the man with peace of mind,
And happier is he still whose heart is pure;
And happiest is the soul of man unsinned;
A place in Heaven, God will us ensure.

Why waste life-time in things of earthly mould?
Our Shepherd Good wants us back in His fold.
