An Answer

[I wrote this poem in response to Robert Frost's 'A Question']

Who decides o’er life and death?
And who will tend to our woes?
It is flesh and blood and gasping breath.
Do I believe in God? God knows.

Subroto, your poem suggests that you are an agnostic! Our lives may be to a certain extent pre-destined, but like all good sportsmen we need to put up a good fight to the finish, with all our flesh and blood...
A succint and clear answer to the ulimate vexing question - -and thought provoking for any searcher.........10plus from Fay.
A worthwhile question asked with sincerity and poetry.
I can only say what I feel and I feel there is no God. Does that make me a villain? That's what I must know.
I agree with you, sir. We can utter a thousand words but only God knows what's inside our heart and soul. Very inspiring and well-penned! :)
