If God asks me

If God asks me
what do you want?

Certainly, I shall say
bestow me with the divine power
to create more and more
beautiful poems
that speaks the language
of all creatures
that expresses the mirth
of a blooming flower
that expresses the grief
of a withering flower
that expresses the pains and pleasures
of an ant working tough
for foster of baby ant
that expresses restless toils
of stars and planets
to keep the pace of nature
always in existence

If God asks me
about my requirement
i shall say
give me bread to feed my family
and to my friend and foe
who gave me love and lesson
give me shelter under your arms
and a sweet home to reside
under the roof of your divine soul

But must not i forget
to mention the names
who creates poem in praise of His divine glory and His infinitive creation
despite of their destitute

And lo! my name be laid all the rest.

Amen

    You are the poet who was born for that reason. It is interesting what you ask from God, you already have.
    Anyway, whatever we do, that is our place to learn the lesson, what only God knows why.
    However, you will be all right in all your life whatever you need, will be supplied to you. You are one of the lucky ones.

    A very nice piece...no doubt, but can't help but agree with Joe Breunig about spelling & grammar. The underlying theme comes out, but somewhat erratically. For eg. In the penultimate line, the word should be 'infinite' instead of infinitive.
    Hope no umbrage taken.

  • Joe Breunig (10/15/2013 2:00:00 PM)

    An interesting piece; while I appreciate the concepts of this poem, (IMO) I feel that it could use some editting (for both spelling and grammar): I get the impression that English is not your first language.

    -Joe Breunig,
    Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory

    `If God asks me
    What do you want'

    I will definitely say, fullfil your wish on me. I do not know what to ask.

    A piece for eternity. O yes! It reaveals on a poet, his making, source of inspiration and aim of his craft. I love this context, Sir.
