Sonnet: There Is Hope In God
What is destined to happen will happen;
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
What is prophesied too will come someday;
God hears our prayers: new doors He’ll open;
Work hard, be patient till things come your way.
Good things may be delayed, never denied;
God watches one’s travails and is not mute;
In truth/ injustice, when we do abide,
To land safely, God sends the parachute.
Despair may come in life in umptine ways,
And grief profound may strike the hearts wounded;
And though we may be counting our last days,
New hope and joy will leave us dumbfounded.
Yet, worrying isn’t the method to solve things;
We must face bravely challenges, life brings.
