Sonnet: The World, We See - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

What types of people have we seen on earth?
The growing list is stupendous in sight;
Yet, righteous ones are still in world, a dearth;
But darkness can’t ever prevail on light!

Though born in light, we human beings slip
Into the world of darkness – sinfulness;
The so-called joy becomes a bitter sip,
When we wallop in its miry excess!

The human nature has its weakness much;
God sees the heart of man and reads his thought;
If not for God’s forgiveness and grace-touch,
We could not win the wars, we always fought.

God loved His creature man without limits;
But sadly man returns this love in bits!

    Darkness can't ever prevail on light.
    In my opinion human is the loveliest incarnation, irrespective of his weaknesses, of God. The omnipotent and Omnipresent Creator has inducted 6 main weaknesses like greed, lust, , hatred, anger etc in of his off springs and to limit the prowess of human beings.
    Off course, I may be wrong due to my own limitations. Thanks for sharing.
