Creation and Us

Like me, have you ever also wondered

Why good people with problems are bothered

Problems that give them sleepless nights

And displace from them memorable sights

Of a lovely and enjoyable life on earth?

Because they see themselves at birth

As the Alfa and Omega, the start and the end

They believe they must have the final “I said”

But this is the truth of our life alone

We are all in the centre of creation

As creation is still ongoing in the universe

We need to appreciate our place in this verse

We are neither the richest nor the poorest

Neither the fattest nor the slimmest

Neither the weakest nor the strongest

Neither the tallest nor the shortest

Neither the most beautiful nor the ugliest

Neither the most brilliant nor the dullest

And if we knew that somehow we are

At the centre of an ongoing creation as we are

Our greed, misgivings, strivings, wickedness and anxiety

Will vanish in the knowledge that we were meant to be

In the middle of creation and that by our very nature we

Cannot be different from who we are meant to be.
