Ravindra Kumar (02 July 1951 / India)
I confound watching people destroy thy majority,
Create various faith in firm conspicuous existence
Submit much proof prove their trust have sequence
And develop fiction base supernatural perfect philosophy.
The many's god live between cells broad sky,
Somewhere thought preserve sits pivot of sea,
Ideal mind Nanak and Buddha paved newfangled lee.
Lo! a part Asiatic deals multi-framed pious fly.
When close positive ravening like consideration propagate
We hold not clear convenient support pride meek,
We lose courage, feel prevailing around the reek
Must please with hand unruffle unsturdy estimate.
Period if strength drive our sagacity become weak
To fulfill purpose get shelter display extricate vivacity.
Calm deny comprehend actual state settle His authority,
Definite defy and deface certain obsolete structure leak.
God is one heartily accepted by each generation,
Immaterial, immortal, insuperable, intangible and omnipresent.
Give us lore, prosperity, vigour and eternal punishment,
What fear trial bestow name to a religion.
To confirm go days back, when life began,
Observe conduct survive they with manner had co-operation,
Not untrue link soul Jesus hold the religion,
Certified logically, craze of world-beaters, better one.
