Wars,hatred,anger and vice
these are what you see with these eyes
if there were a God, he would not be so cold
so you don’t believe in God

fear,jealousy, sloth and despair
more and more of those everywhere
if there were a God, he could not bear it all
so you don’t believe in God

guns,bombs,knives and horror
ever-increasing tales of terror
if there were a God, he would smite them all
so you don’t believe in God

But if you were to look all around
these are not the only things that abound
if there were a God, he would make you see
there is more to the world than tragedy

Pineapples,Oranges,Radishes and Greens
Hugs,Warmth, Kisses and Sunbeams
if there were a God, you cannot deny
these are what He wanted you to enjoy

Flowers,Babies,Books and Leaves
Smiles,Rain and soft willow trees
if there were a God, then you will know
that this too is but his great show

So you may say there is no God
Only the Devil and surely no Lord,
But if you accept all the good and all the bad
surely there is a God in there somewhere

That was beautiful Shailaja. Yes indeed it is upto us to see the good or the bad.. God is truly everywhere we just have to look.
