Rants of a Seven Year Old….

Each day when I open my eyes,

And look at the nosey sunrise,

Mom forces me to pray, otherwise,

I get a smack on my head.

But is God really that good?

Like Peter Pan and Robin Hood?

Does he do what he really should?

I have my serious doubts.

The other day I went out to play,

In the fields where sunflowers sway,

Just then he hit me with a spray,

The dude was really mean!

First he paints his flowers red,

That seem so happy and well fed.

But then he makes them brown and dead.

The guy is so confused!

Don’t you think God is one of us?

Just a slob like one of us,

Just a stranger on the bus,

Trying to make his way home.

    WOW, I wish and Hope all 7 year olds think this way .. world will be such a lovely place to live in.

    Yes god is One of us, lives in each of us but for some selfish reason we dont see him/her in us or in others (especially)..

    He he he… At times an innocent remark made by a child is so meaningful that it leaves us adults flabbergasted. 🙂

      🙂 When the child goes out to play in the fields it begins to rain. The child thinks that it is really mean of God to do that . Spray= rain 🙂

    Ha ha ha… such a delightful poem Chhavi!
    God is surely confused when seen from that perspective. If only the seven year old grows up to be a nice young person with his doubts cleared the nice, innocent way, the world would be paradise.

    • Chhavi says :

      Thanks Deboshree 🙂 Yeah if only all children could grow that way 😉 😉 Seems quite impossible in today’s world though.
