Flickering Light

Miles ahead
Through the pitch darkness
I focused hard
To see a flickering light.
A ray of hope
In a world, so doomed
I stumbled with bruises
To embrace that flickering light.
A distant dream
With darkened screams
A swamp, full of struggles
A tunnel to that flickering light.

Why we need God…

In order to know him
You have to become a disbeliever
Walk through a sceptical path
Through the maze of darkness
Seek the realm of science
Surrendering to knowledge
Because it is only
Going through darkness
You might find him
And find light

When we were kids, we had so much faith on our parents. They were our Gods and no matter what, they protected us, fulfilled our needs. We had so much happiness in their company.


But as we grow up and get expose to knowledge of our surroundings, we tend to lose that faith with which we were born. We still love our parents but only able to convince ourselves in one or the other way that God doesn’t exist.


The reason behind our sudden disbelieving is our failures, our loss, our defeats. Sometimes, some of us believe so much in science that we think that there is no need of God in the realms of laws of nature.


But believe me or not the first step towards believing is disbelieving. You have to seek the realm of science in order to understand the nature of any supreme being if he exist because maybe we are still in the phase of that dark tunnel.


We are going through a dark time, a pandemic which has defeated our knowledge of science. We still are far away from that ultimate truth, knowledge or science that can fight these situations effectively.

Till then a person who is on his death bed, the only solace for him is his belief on God. God is peace to him, he maybe a state of mind but it is definitely our cure of grief.

Therefore we need God like never before. So all sceptics in the world,maybe you are going in the right direction. Just follow science and have respect for everyone because it is only through humbleness we can see and understand clearly.

Angels are Working

Far from their families
For the sake of humanity
Angels are working
To keep the hopes alive

Hiding their bruises
Itching their burns
They are walking on embers
To keep the hopes alive

Gods among us
The sages of humanity
Sacrificing their lives
On the alter of humanity

Their stories will be told
Their tale of sacrifice
Forever they will be remembered
As Angels of humankind

(These Angels are Doctors, Health workers, officials and Bankers)
