Dear God...



This is not a prayer. Nor is this a complaint about something I'm not satisfied with. And I'm definitely not blaming You for anything! In fact, You might be surprised to hear this, but I want to express my gratitude, for a change!

I want to thank You for making things alright. I want to thank You for helping me make the right decisions...even if they don't seem so right at first! Thanks for pulling me up when I'm struggling. Thanks for holding my hand when I reach out to You. And thanks for being so patient with me when I crib incessantly about insignificant things! With Your help, I've been able to own up to my mistakes- and make amendments.

You have blessed me with a loving family and supportive friends. You have helped me see how much they love me, and how much I love them. And how important they are to me in every way possible. I owe you a great deal for that.

Thanks for making me see beyond appearences and into the hearts of people around me and to help appreciate their inner beauty. Thanks for giving me a healthy body so I can make myself useful to those who are less fortunate. I know I complain about some things a lot, but deep down, You know I'm thankful.

You have been guiding me all these years. And I know You wont leave my side, ever. Thanks for being my best pal, my pillar of strength and the love I seek. Thanks for being there God. I love you.

Your baby

MS said...

I am tired of all these compliments, fed up with the belief in the existence of a merciful creature who is above u and is in command of all good and bad. I am fed up with the ppl who do not want to admit to their failures and triumphs, all the time putting them down to fate and goD. We just ignore the fact of ourselves and give up ourselves to hiM,and gladly concede to be slaves, while outside we r shouting and fighting against it. It maked me annoyed to hear that another MAN has backed off just because of lack of bravery,just because they r afraid of face up to problems all alone,just because they are afraid of accepting the Fact that they have to encounter the difficulties of life(which are the most challenging things in this world) on their own.
thnx for ur non-existence.

for the believers:
Trees (by Joyce Kilmer)

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Mirage said...

@poison: jeez thts horrifying?! wht happened man! no bones broken, i hope! Someone must really like u up there...! ;)

@uma: thnx a bunch! oh n keep dropping by! :)

@jithu: lol! naaah not even close! oh but my bday is just arnd the corner! thought a li'l maskofying wud do some good!

@anuj: U shud start soon!

@arz000n: yea ur right! I better b a li'l alert! Actually we dont celebrate ganesh chaturthi here so had no idea abt it. we dont even get an off! ;) No offence Ganeshji!

@MS: Hmm...well no one's giving themselves up to him. If u read the post agen i hv only thanked Him for helping ME make the right decisions. Don't u sometimes hv a voice in ur head telling u 2 do somethin. Well I call that God. I dont believe in religion and stuff like that. Everyone has their own definitions of God, even the non-believers yes. So i just wrote my own.

Beautiful poem by the way!

Me said...

Amen !!! Glad you're feeling better now...have a great weekend...

shaan said...

me lost !!!!
btw i sensed the changed style of u r writing .. ne ways howz u

Jayant said...

Nice post! I appreciate your sentiment, but personally I don't believe in God. I'm not being cynical but there are just too many things going on in this world that force me to think like this!
But, to each his own!
If He is your guiding force in life, then so be it. Everyone needs to have something or someone to hold on to in life. :)

Mirage said...

@avik: thanx man! will do...

@shaan: hey nice to see u! I'm doing gr8...how bt u?

@jayant: I guess youre right! To life...!
