His Way - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

I fell badly he says in painful groan
His hand plastered for the broken bone
I didn’t slip nor in walk do I sleep
Or move in worries buried deep!

But still I fell in broad daylight
In clear view and clean eyesight
Without a pothole a hidden bump
Walking without a hop or a jump!

It’s painful though I don’t mind
God is so great He is so kind
He led me like a true guide
Ensuring I fall on my left side.

It's His way of showing grace
minimizing harm lessening distress
with my right hand working and free
my life is as normal as could be!

    I sense the satire in these lines! There are people who see the positive side of everything and thank God's Providence! The protagonist of this story must be such a man! I am sure, life is easier for such people than those who look upon everything through the grid of reason!

    An interesting write, Pradip! ! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
