Who Is God? - Poem by shweta gulia

Who is god is he a wishing well?
Because I have seen people
In temples beating the bells.

In front of him they offer different contracts
But they are really getting distracted from their tracks.
Everyone deals with him for power and money
Without knowing their needs
They want to live life in honey.

If they don't achieve their dreams, their life gets paused.
For this they blame God and ask the cause.
Nobody ask themselves do they really deserve?
They don't understand
Want their feelings to be preserved.

Who is God, is he a wishing well?
Because I have seen people
In temples beating the bells.

God is like our father who has lost his children.
He know our needs,
the people of the world
are broken garland and we are its beads.
For him the relationship is very pure,
we don't understand him, we just want more and more.

    Your observation is remarkable and more remarkable is depiction of same. God is like our father who has lost his children.................or the children have lost their father, and the ending 'we just want more and more'.............there is no end to this more. (Report) Reply

    I take it that 'beating the bells' is a Hindu tradition to appease the gods when asking for things - and you've noticed the greediness / shallowness of some poeple? ' They want to live life in honey' - do you mean, 'they want to live a life of bread and honey? ' - nice poem, good observation, great idea and covers a pleasantly deep subject for a 16 yr old - Keep writing! (Report) Reply

    If their prayers are not answered positively, people blame God and ask the cause. Realistic portrayal.
    Well written poem. What is life? is excellent. I think the comments I typed are not conveyed to you.
    That poem deserves top scores. Cheers!

    I take it some people beat the bells in Hindu temples in order to please the gods and hope to receive power and wealth in returm for their symbolic gesture? Nice poem - Not sure of the meaning of the line 'want their feelings to be preserved'? 'They want to live life in honey' - do you mean 'they want to live a life of bread and honey? Nice poem - good idea - keep writing (Report) Reply
