Sonnet: We Need God's Help - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

I tried to climb life's hill, all on my own;
I found I could not make it to the top;
I tried to walk and run life's road alone;
I found I couldn't do it for long but hop!

I tried to steer the ship of Life to sea;
I found I could not brave the stormy waves;
I tried to venture in life's lands, singly;
I found I could not make it to the caves.

I tried to climb the tree of life solely;
I found that I couldn't make it to its crown;
I tried to ascend life's ladder, freely;
I found it rather tall and soon slipped down!

And then, I remembered my God and tried;
All things seemed easy and with joy I cried!
