Will You God Please?


Oh my God my God
I am only a paper boat
That flows along
The turbulent waves of sadness
Drizzling of tears
When you will bless me?
Say God please
Oh God
Oh I look inside me only
Why not I look the world
Through my eyes
Let God bless the sobbing world
Oh God my God
Will you bless my graveyard please?

    Ha ha.... you are there at least to float as a paper boat. What can God do who cannot save himself from the currents of reason and invalidation these times? Have you seen his tears? It`s my stand Jayan... leave it
    Enjoyed the lines well. (Report) Reply

    Truly confessional and earnest supplication, a humble one, emerging from one's own person and encompassing the humanity: Oh I look inside me only
    Why not I look the world
    Through my eyes
    Let God bless the sobbing world

    the imagery of paper boat and turbulent waves of sadness is the apt imagery...
    it is said of prayer, one should always think of others first, God likes selflessness... (Report) Reply
