Sonnet: Suffering’s Are God-Sent - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Despite the fact that people get punished,
They won’t give up their habits bad for long;
They love to see the other much ravished,
And will not give up things that appear wrong.

’Tis hard abandoning one’s vices gained!
Good habits die an early death in life;
Men commit sins until the soul is stained;
So, God brings on an era of great strife!

’Tis vanity that steals the hearts of men,
And pride afills their heads in umptine ways;
While jealousy weakens their little ken;
In wasteful thinking, spent are his good days.

But men won’t take the road that’s right and fair!
So, suff’rings come that they just cannot bear.
