God's First Secret


Do you know
What God told me the other day?
I am telling you
In top secrecy.
If you breathe a word to God
I shall never tell you anything again.
Remember, be careful!
Needless to say,
God has shared with me
Millions of His sacred secrets.
Now I shall share with you
His first secret:
At the end of your journey's close
Your epitaph will read
'An unfulfilled tear of God';
My epitaph will read
'A fulfilled smile of God.'
Remember, be careful!
If you breathe a word to God
I shall not share anything else with you;
No, not even the precise hour
of your God-realisation
Which God told me
Only this morning
In top secrecy.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
