An Universal Religion

A building with staircase four
Anyone can reach the first floor,
Climbing any one of the steps.
Or through a lift with no efforts.

Here the first floor means the Almighty,
And the staircases, the religions many,
Each one, to reach Him, tells the way,
But all showing the same path way.

His messengers, God sent to the earth
To places, east, west, north and south
And at different periods and times.
Thus came into force all the religions.

The messenger of each religion
Spoke in the language of his own,
That the God was the Supreme One,
Blessing His creations from the Heaven.

Unaware of this truth, one religion,
Why should fight with another one,
Saying that no other religion
Exists as superior to their own?
