Sonnet: God, How Can I Be Inert?
Need I be silent spectator on Earth,
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Watching helplessly sufferings around?
Was I not meant for a purpose at birth,
To help unfortunate, heavenward bound?
Need I be selfish ignoring others,
Bothered of only my material wealth;
Should I not help my downtrodden brothers?
Thus, improve my mind’s clime and my soul’s health!
Need I be helpless, deaf and dumb and blind,
To all unfair happenings that surround me?
Should I not put my might and try to find,
Solutions to problems of society?
Oh, make me useful God, to my brethren.
And let me help them find on earth, Heaven!
