Dear Almighty, Forgive Us
by Antriksh Sehgal
(Jammu and Kashmir, India)
Oh maker of the world that lives in heaven,
You need to wake, you can't be there,
Your creation is unsafe, requires a leaven,
For our sake, on earth, be everywhere.
It's all about favoritism, no equality in us,
Here fiends, blood suckers are crowned.
Bromides by all, still no one to discuss,
Selfishness on peak, graciousness now drowned.
Affluents clutching sway, destitutes procuring death,
Devils dilating, angels are now curtailing,
Enemies all around, inside their wrath,
Warmth in relations, perishing and failing.
Beloved deity, your cosmos needs to be absolved,
Our emotions and persona need to be evolved.
