Sonnet: My Letter To God - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

I wrote a letter from my heart to God,
(As men on earth wallow in corruption) ,
Requesting Him to end my strife by nod
And keep my soul immune to Damnation!

I never know from whom my troubles come;
Sometimes, ’tis clear and true, I am at fault;
The temptations of devils make me dumb;
‘My sufferings of body, Lord, Please halt! ’

God answered speaking right within my heart;
(Although delayed, His letter came on time!)
‘Just keep My code for life till you depart:
For everything on earth, I’ve set a clime.’

The Bible showed me how to live on earth;
God loves each man even before his birth.
