Believe me when I say that I am probably one of the least religious person you’ll meet and I intend to offend nobody via this post. I find it rather tragic that over the centuries it has become increasingly difficult to see God and religion as two separate unrelated entities. But anyway, I’ll not criticize what I do not fully understand. But what I do understand is the adage “God resides within all of us”. And this is how I understand it-
It starts beating at week 4
Stays with us till our time goes
It beats and beats and beats
It loves and loves and forgives
Bears the sins of VLDL for us
Nourishes and provides in surplus
Be it to brain or even an organ vestigial
Isn’t the heart Jesus, so congenial?
When all is not that well within
When the dance of destruction begins
Wiped away from every sign of existence
Are NK-cell’s & apoptosis victims
Osteoclasts demolish bone undefied
But only to let new centers ossify
Lysozyme held in throats of cells
Aren’t they all Shiva’s organelles?
Good old liver, truly the seat of courage
Generating factors to cease bloodshed
Battling toxins, inviolable to lesions
Orchestrating the whole metabolic rhythm
That has got to be Athena’s precision
Every mitosis, Every meiosis
Cell division, beginning of genesis
Birth of a dream or creation of zygote
Is all a story Bhrama within us wrote
You can’t draw soul, I can’t sculpt it.
You haven’t seen it. I haven’t measured it.
For it is the light. It is the void.
It isn’t a prism. It isn’t a rhomboid.
Not in pages of Physiology but within us a soul resides
That could be Allah, a structureless power that guides.
Not in monuments but within blood & flesh.Your God is free, don’t try to enmesh.
