A Ghazal - He And We

wind water earth sky - all things remain the same
for our Lord in heaven above we are but a game

He tests us at every step if we fail
not He but we're ourselves to blame

all day the devotees throng His shrine
chanting His name spreading His fame

desires they've sown for ages in their hearts
if they don't sprout won't it be His shame?

deaf He may be to my pleas, uni,
don't think on His love i'll forego my claim.

He tests us at every step if we fail not He but we're ourselves to blame yeah very much true, Our God is really kind God. We just need to bear fruits to enjoy his glory on us.

Lovely poem in Ghazal form. Content-wise also, it is superb. Thanks, Dear Friend.
A thoughtful and mindful view of God and the need to understand 'he tests us at every step.'
