Voice of Dissent

Captives of an unending illusion called Maya
We the mortals subjects of an eternal hilarious comedy
Raise our heads now and then in questioning the SUPREME power
Fall flat at His feet with our wisdom finding no answer

Calling oneself atheist and Agnostic
With claims of unproved uncanny arguments
Voicing dissent by victimizing the scriptures
More than the believers think more of God

Targeting the religion known for its tolerance
Spitting their venom on practices that are bygone
Focusing on peace lovers who seldom retaliate
Derive a devilish pleasure by hurting the sentiments

Mind looks never beyond when the approach is hostile
Merits are ignored while flaws are magnified
Such is the mindset that only recognize the lapses
Puncture the harmony by sowing seeds of animosity

Born to differ and preferred to dither
Brothers and sisters besieged by belligerence
Bracing the road of bemoaned ignorance
Begrimed ever under constant confusion

Not a blind belief is the concept of God
Prevents us mostly from doing the wrongs
Preaches the path of love and tolerance
Puts our lives in perfect pedestal!

Form or formless, norm or norm less
An image, a symbol or a concept
The nature, the infinity or the wisdom
Words differ but all refer to the Ultimate

Known as She known as He
Combined form of He and She
I salute to thee the spirit behind all the actions
Without which world would had only History!

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
