Ever Turn Towards God


On the Mariner’s compass
The Magnetic needle
Automatically turns
To the Magnetic North, ever.

Similarly

On our Mind’s compass
The Magnetic needle
Automatically ought to turn
To the Magnetic God, ever.

    Man is on eternal quest after God! A God centred life can ensure peace and joy! Though God may not will to lift the burdens from our shoulder, He will strengthen our shoulders to bear the burden! The analogy drawn in the poem is very apt! (Report) Reply
