Sonnet: We Need God's Help
I tried to climb life's hill, all on my own;
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
I found I could not make it to the top;
I tried to walk and run life's road alone;
I found I couldn't do it for long but hop!
I tried to steer the ship of Life to sea;
I found I could not brave the stormy waves;
I tried to venture in life's lands, singly;
I found I could not make it to the caves.
I tried to climb the tree of life solely;
I found that I couldn't make it to its crown;
I tried to ascend life's ladder, freely;
I found it rather tall and soon slipped down!
And then, I remembered my God and tried;
All things seemed easy and with joy I cried!
