Sonnet: Yet, Abide In God - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

If suff’rings be my fate, why should I blame
The people, world and all things me around?
My time, energy wasted, makes me lame!
In fighting evils- how long am I bound?

My troubles make me all the more steady;
My Godliness improves by leaps and bounds;
Renewed vigor keeps me ever-ready;
Almighty God helps me to break new grounds.

New hope is born out of my struggles great;
My faith in God increases all the more;
’Tis left to God, my Lord to change my fate;
If He still wants, much blessings He can pour.

Miracles more could happen anytime;
God, show me how to make my life sublime.
