Sonnet: Man Must Be Wise - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Man thinks he is cleverer than his God!
Good deeds he does and commits too grave sins;
Presuming time will be offered by lord,
And the devils’ fight he can finally win.

Our God is so kind but He is Master;
He knows our heart’s depths and every small thought;
Much more than any man, God thinks faster;
Man can’t cheat God and to know this, he ought.

Our lifetime though long, yet appears so short;
Already some men live on borrowed time;
Till old age sets, his sins, man cannot cart
Man should repent fast to make life sublime.

Who knows purgatory still awaits some men;
’Tis wise to suffer here; go to Heaven.
