God-The Prisoner - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

God is all powerful! Believers say in unison
Yet He is a prisoner in human world
A prisoner of devotion! Vouch the devout
But He is kept under lock and key
A prisoner indeed! Yet God is all powerful!
God is Omnipresence! Vouch the devout
But we limit his presence to places of worship
A prisoner indeed! Yet God is all powerful!
God is Omnipotent! Vouch the devout
But He remains mute before human power
A powerless indeed! Yet God is all powerful!
God is the creator! Vouch the devout
But wicked humans vandalizing the Nature
A blind indeed! Yet God is all powerful!
Having said this His supremacy is not questioned
Let power prevail upon the Supreme to save this world!

    You brought out how helpless God is. Hope He will assume all His powers and brings peace. Nice poem. (Report) Reply
