A DEVOTIONAL PRAYER AND THE ILLUSIONARY LAYER

A DEVOTIONAL PRAYER AND THE ILLUSIONARY LAYER

A Poem by Jvl narasimharao

There are three ways to reach the All-Mighty

Knowledge, devotion and disinterested duty

Knowledge is infinite

but Man’s vision is only finite

 

If man honestly performs his duty

It is undoubtedly a great beauty

But there are many hurdles

Which make him leave the ideals

 

Only devotion seems to be the easiest

It may be Rama, Allah or Jesus Christ

You need not be a great scholar

And need not be a wonderful performer

 

You will reach God through a devotional prayer

But you should unveil the illusionary layer

Only philosophy and God seem to the ultimate truth

Although it may not appeal greatly to an atheist and the youth

what a fantastic peeling away the layers of deitific suppositions to the core~ there is a light element here that endears the poem to the reader~ it is in the shape of an offering which evokes a benign response~the last line of the last stanza is truly smile inducing wistfulness~ much enjoyed!
