~Don't Ask God~


He doesn't help a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly,
He isn't there to help when in water an ant is about to drown and die.
At first they helped themselves then only God gave them a hand,
In making and breaking of cocoon Or Safely returning back to land.

He isn't there at first place helping bees to collect honey,
He isn't there when a common man is in need of money.
They have to work hard first to achieve their goals,
Then God helps them to protect the honey Or provides safety to those souls.

So,
If you want fame
Don't Ask God
If you want a shortcut to your aim
Don't Ask God
To put everything in a perfect frame
Don't Ask God
If there is something precious which you want to obtain..
First try it yourself, Then Ask God...
