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!
