The days of monsoon,
the winds blew loud.
And water poured
from a thousand clouds.
Came a man
and stood out the church
Sat on the desk
under the tree of birch
The clouds poured more
People cried and frowned .
Within an hour or less
the entire city drowned.
The winds began to moan
Ripping and tearing the city off.
All people except he disappeared
None of them dared to stop.
The Christ in the church got amazed
Seeing his undetermined will.
Came out he and said,
“Get into the church gentleman,till the winds stand still.”
Said he,” I am no more a gentleman lord
Mind not consider me a priest.
Appearances do deceive sometimes,
I have turned into a mere atheist.”
“I believe you no more ,lord
In you, I have lost faith.
The one who left me alone in hard times
Is now calling me to save my breath?”
“ I have no desire to live,
Coz, I’ve lost everything.
Who cares to lead an animal life
When born as a human being.”
The Christ smiled &said-
“ I believe my son , you are born great.
No matter if you disbelieve me
But on you , I have utmost faith.”
“Forgive me for all the hardships you faced,
For in future, I’d planned something great.
Coz ,I knew you would overcome those hurdles ,
As on you ,I had complete faith.”
As he listened to this,
Tears rolled down his cheek.
Feeling guilty and unpoud,
He lost his nerves and began to freak.
“ No need of being guilty son!”,said lord
“ It wasn’t your fault.
Coz you were broken by the hardships you faced,
Which were as good as a great assault.”
“Remember son, in life,
You still have great things to achieve.
And to overcome all those hurdles
‘In yourself ’, you need to believe.
He bowed to the lord with humbleness ,& said-
“ I’ll remember your words my lord, Coz, in life, I still have lot more things to see
And from this moment, I believe,
Not only in myself but also thee.”
