Sonnet: My World At Times
Like insect trapped in spider’s silky web,
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Like drowning man, caught in the mighty seas,
My sufferings in life don’t seem to ebb;
I feel much robbed of health and my mind’s peace.
Like man slipping into a swampy mud,
Like deer that’s trapped within a lion’s den,
My life’s flower remains ever a bud!
But God blossoms it despite evil men.
Like lamb hunted by pack of devilish wolves,
Like man fallen when pushed into a well,
The world around me mocks, rebukes, revels,
Making my life on earth almost a hell!
But I don’t bother, God is beside me;
He rescues me in time safely, surely!
