Cause and Effect


I know not what the cause

and what the effect.

Cause and effect together..

spinning out furiously my life's path for me.

caught in its merciless tangles,

I cry out for mercy.


Oh, Lord!

I lay before thee.. my bundle of grief.

For you to decide,
What the Cause and What the Effect!

    From this roller coaster ride of several life times
    We nomadic souls do freedom seek
    From the karmic web of cause and effect
    Some day, He will deliver the humble and meek.............

    Our destiny defies our logic and our understanding. We believe in karma to soothe our disturbed mind: or Is it the Divine truth? (Report) Reply

    We are part of the cosmic design and we are ignorant of the great scheme! We can only submit ourselves fully to Him who is the Alpha and Omega! A great write! (Report) Reply
