Faith Is A Powerful Thing

From a very young age I have been inculcated
And indoctrinated with the belief in god.
I used to have the waking frights in the nights,
Terrific deep fears of “Satan” everywhere and
Horrible nightmares and in those moments

I would call on God to protect me from “Satan”.
Such is the story evolved over thousands of years.

A phobia; promising a carrot and menacing with a stick.

Powerful faith defies all logic as truth is subjective
Old equations and potions never appeal to my mind
Wrong and right my heart of hearts knows well.
Even though I know HE is everywhere
Residing in each being, even in an atom.
Faith is like a mustard seed small in size
Until it grows into the largest ever pasture
Leaving us in awe with His glory and power.

The time when happy, I say, ‘It’s god’s grace’
However when in troubles, I seek Him
Invariably to know where he is.
Never knowing that I’m like a small ant in a basement of
GREAT, vast and unfathomable structured edifice.

You speak the truth and have established some points to ponder; perhaps many people will. Well done.

Without faith a man must walk alone from this world into the next. I am thankful for God's companionship. I enjoyed your poem Dr. Ram.
