God needs space

Kedarnath Tragedy

There was a time
when he chose to stay
among His beautiful creations
He made His home in Himalayan Valley

He wanted to live in peace
on a tower called Himalaya
to take His decisions with open mind
while keeping His eyes over us all

Then we started invading His peaceful palace
to have an added advantage in a rat-race
He always treated all equally
those who visited Him or those who didn't

but when His home started being attacked in masses
His concentration started being distracted
He wasn’t able to save a girl from being raped
and saw little kids starving to death

When He struggled to find solace
there was a disaster
and everything washed away
‘coz He needed space
to do His job in a proper way.

    Beautifully interpreted.
    Even my Dad says that earlier people used to go as worshipers, and now it’s more of a vacation or excursion trip…so may be He is annoyed beyond tolerance.

      Before posting it I was little nervous about how people would take it. I am glad it wasn’t taken otherwise. Thank you!
