Treasure Island

Valsa George


Come to Me


From my heart rises an incessant cry
Like a stormy wind gaining in force and fury
With every passing moment, it becomes a tumultuous roar
And falls in my ears loud and clear

“I want Thee, My God and My Lord
I want none but Thee”

Enter the soundlessness of my being
Transmute my silence into sheer joy
Play on my tight strung sitar strings
And fill the eerie silence with euphonic melody

Be with me, not before or behind
But by my side and all around
I wait here with my lamp lit and burning
Expectant and anxious, in this murky gloom

Come to me as a puff of fresh air
Fall on me as a shower of mercy
Enthrall me with a burst of song
And drown my weary soul in heavenly music

Come to me snapping the binding wires of sin
Talk to me dissolving the gloom of doubt
Convert my world which is now a vast arid waste
With new life burgeoning in every parched nook
Sweep away the clouds of gloom hovering my soul
And fill it with sunshine, luminous and bright

Perchance if you leave me one day
Let the loud lunged pitch of your voice
Keep ringing in my ears as supernal music
And your definitive striking image
Keep flashing in my inward eye
So that I will not walk into night
Or dread the fall of gloom!

    valsa, glancing at the comments a bit, it is obvious that religion will elicit quite a response, though responses may oppose one another. assuming this poem is a heartfelt creation of yours, i will simply say that i think it has quite a bit of merit as a poem. of course you could have used more lowly words that this lowly poet would be more familiar with! (i'm mostly kidding with that last sentence) . why would God leave you? i don't understand that part so well. and i think [i have to always be picky, you know] over should be put between hovering and my soul.

    thanks for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

    The protein molecule is a very important structure of the living cell -Very important part in the living structure of the cell. The protein molecule consists of five elements - the Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen and Sulphur. And there are tens and thousands of Atoms required to make one Molecule. One Atom has five elements - Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Hydrogen and Sulphur. There are tens of thousands of Atoms, which make one Protein Molecule - And there are approximately 92 free elements. The chances that out of these 92, the five will form an Atom… and these atoms will form tens and thousands of Atom, to form one Protein Molecule was calculated by Frank Alien. And he said… ‘the chances are 1/10 raised to 160’. You know what is the meaning of 1/10 raised to 160? If I say 1/10 raised to two, ten raise to two means, one zero zero zero. One in hundred - Chance is one percent. If I say 1/10 raised to three, it means one in a thousand – That is 1 percent. If I say 1/10 raise to four it means one in ten thousand - Means point 0.01%. So when the calculation was made, (1/10) raised to 160. It means point zero zero zero zero zero hundred and fifty seven zeros, then one. And mathematics tells, ‘anything 1/10 raised to fifty, is counted as zero’. Further more, this is talking about one molecule. And the substance required to form this one molecule of protein was calculated by another person Charles Guy - that it will require millions of times of substance as huge as our Galaxy. Millions of galaxies will be required to form this one molecule of protein. And the time was calculated by Charles Guy - the time taken for one protein molecule to be formed, will be ten raised to 263 years. You know what is that? One zero zero zero zero zero zero,263 zeros, it will take to form one protein molecule. And do you know there are how many protein molecule in one cell? And do you know how many other molecules are there in the cell? And how many cells are there in the human being? There are more than six billion molecules when a child is born. That is what doctors tell us today, six billion. One protein molecule takes 1/10 raise to 160 chances. Time taken is ten raise to two hundred and forty three years. To take six billion for one baby imagine. And how many women are pregnant? There are millions of women pregnant at a time - And it takes only 9 months. ‘The chances’… Science tells us, ‘is zero zero zero, no chance at all’. These things cannot take by chance - they have to be programmed by Someone. Science tells us‘There has to be Someone, some Supernatural force’. Therefore science is not eliminating God’ - It is eliminating models of god.

    I am talking logic and science. (Report) Reply

    Madam Valsa, I am pasting a copy of my comment added under my poem COME TO OUR LANDS to communicate with more of the PH friends on what you and I have opined earlier. Please, allow this comment for a few days.
    Our supplications are to the concept of 'God' but I assert here the probability of that hypothetical omnipresence being irrelevantly present if at all by chance it exists. I want to answer each of your arguments pointing out the superfluous superiority of the arguments in support of spiritual well being built on imaginary lines from times man made God! .
    1. You are referring to omnipotence... I think there can never be beings / things that are omniscient, omnipotent or omnipresent. These terms are illogical and we human beings who will form less than 000012% of the total living organisms present on the earth are toying with such ideas which are magical and irrational. But the practice being that many would like to think they are 'all correct', a brutal majority of us think cannot think otherwise.
    2.You refer to 'spiritual well being' being equal to or even being more important than physical well being..
    If all are physically well off in an approximately uniform manner, one can buy your argument. The nonsense is either you or I can first have physical well being and at the end can even opt for the elevation to the spiritual well being whereas many millions will have to compromise with the absolute deprivation of physical well being in the material world and then they have to wait for the spiritual well being after death.In a world of equality all ought to benefit from the well being they are entitled to have and given to then unasked for. A Somalian must lead a miserable life till death and then should enter the heaven for eternity whereas Valsa George and Dinesh Nair can have both is ridiculous and amounts to no justice.
    3.Those who call upon God are not blind. The happy beggar who sleeps for want of concerns and the sleepless rich man who turns insomniac for the excesses of his amassed wealth are not supposed to be the graphic designs of a God to drive this point home. There is no guarantee that by wiping out poverty and want we can solve all the problems on the earth. In this scenario your God might be blundering by allowing the co existence of vices and virtues.
    4. What is God`s grace? He/she/it could have directly gone for abundant display of it by creating eternity for all from the very alpha and why all this humbug of testing the haves and have nots on different platters and why all these dramatic phases of allowing materialistic pursuits and La Vegas and hunger and suffering of Sudan and Sambalpur for a child`s fancy? Is that power that insane or regardless of things.
    May we ponder over things pertaining to a global problem and not an individual crisis.
    We are all here... we think and so we are...
    We eat and drink and so we write too.
    They cannot eat and drink and they cannot wage this war of words over this PH..

    I am giving a 10 for your poem as commanded to do so by.........

    Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Madam Valsa, I have written a poem titled COME TO OUR ARID LANDS in response to this submission of yours.
    As you cannot forget Him, I think I cannot forget to remind Him of His duties...

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.
