Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


A remedy in frustration


God is there since ages and ages the human memory knows
Distress calls and despondent prayers pulled him always
To cater our needs, Answering some appearing in Form
Discharged He the duties towards devotees and believers
No exception it seems even for the God from laws of nature
Age it appears catching up even with the God sparing Him not
The ears that could hear from the depths of Oceans and beyond
The eyes that could penetrate anywhere in the entire universe
Failing him nowadays as is with any mortals of no consequence
May be He is in need of a hearing aid and a set of powerful glasses
Advice from whom we should take approach whom for fixing them?

with due apologies to staunch believers, not intended to hurt any feelings but only venting out my anguish towards His silence for keeping mum on the happenings around.

    At times we feel that God is blind and deaf! But the religions teach us that our life on Earth is a fleeting second compared to eternity! So all our pains and hardships endured in good spirits will be rewarded in heaven! Only if we can look beyond this life, we will be able to derive such consolations! Your poem is deep and interesting too, especially the suggestion that God needs a pair of spectacles and hearing aid! But who will bell the cat? (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
