Wise Men - And God! ! ! - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Wise men were discussing on God
The conversation goes like this:

To me He is self sufficient
Doesn’t need anything from us
No prayers, no sacrifices and nothing
Since He owns everything
He is omnipotent, merciful and beneficent

To me He seems to be
Worship hungry, disciplined
Punctual, pure and pungent
Yet wants our submission, obey
and follow His commands

To me He appears to be
A Creator, a Watcher and
An Auditor, who will judge us
Based on our deeds
But does He need to do all this?
To show us the He is supreme
He is powerful, Creator
Which is self-sufficient for being HE.

To me He is nothing since
He created the world from nothing
He does nothing when people suffer
He will destroy this world and
There will be nothing like on
Other planets, we are born
From nothing and when we die
We are nothing….

The last one kept silence
After listening to all the wise men
And His inner heart pumped
Like a volcano, He was breathing fire
In and fragrance out
Thinking about the devil’s ploy
Keeping everyone busy
And fully convinced of what they presume
Such is the life of this world
With vivid picture painted by individuals
Yet no one knows what is right and
What is correct, do you? ?

    We are not grown up enough to recognize that superstitious, bronze age men with the approximate knowledge of a 7 year old created the myth to explain natural phenomena and comfort themselves. I of course cannot prove its nonexistence but the fable has morphed to ridiculous proportions over the centuries and led many to use that myth as a tool for their own profit by capitalizing on the fear of the ignorant.
    The debate is unfortunately heavily one-sided based on NO facts and will continue

    We all are searching for HIM yet we do a futile exercise as we all know HE is not with us physically, all we can do is to accept HIM as He is and see HIS signs on earth. In many forms and many ways.....OUTSTANDING POEM MAN...10 on 10. (Report) Reply
