Sonnet: What Can’t I Sacrifice To Reach Heaven? - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

In life, I compromise so many things;
I cannot fight forever in this world;
At times, I take whatever Life just brings;
My sufferings remain in heart untold!

But sin is one thing which I must avoid;
The soul is meant to reach God’s own Abode;
A sinful man can’t satisfy the Lord;
We must therefore live by His every code.

The God of purity is truth and light;
He abhors sins and abysmal darkness;
A thousand suns can’t match His face so bright!
He wants all men freed from devils’ harness.

The grace of God is robe and soul’s haven;
What can’t I sacrifice to reach Heaven?
