Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


God-the Prisoner


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!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
