Poem: Naked

The Rise and Fall of Every Living Creature is Undeniable

The Rise
The Rise
The Fall
The Fall


The chilling wind that blown north

On an autumn day

Reminded me:

Of a lonely leaf

That was fallen from

A maple tree

On a summer noon;

Of a solitary star

That burnt and faded;

Of an oyster

Who lost his shell and died

On the sea shore;

Of an old man

Worn and shaky

Held his last breath

And died;

It reminded me

How naked we are

In the hands of God

Life is miraculously beautiful and as much ugly it depends on our perceptions how we think about life. Every child is born beautiful and sinless what makes him good or bad is the society in which he lives. We are born lonely and die lonely still we want to have so many relationships, possessions and luxuries in life. For the sake of these things we commit sins and forget that regardless of how much we earn in this life we are going to die with empty hands. Only our deeds will be with us.

While living on this earth we all feel arrogant at some times. This arrogance is sometimes due to wealth, otherwise due to beauty or honor and fame we get from others. We often forget that there is a God and we are all in His control. Though He has given us limits in which we can grow and work but at times we forget His presence. Only when we are in trouble and could not bear the pain then we feel His presence and turn towards Him.

I wanted to ask all those people who do not believe in the existence of God; Did they never feel His presence? If God does not exist then who is it that give them life and seize their breaths; why can't they control their life and death; who give them material body. If they can give answers to these questions I will surely agree that there is no God.
