Puny avatar; why in the name of God?

Posted on: September 12, 2010

Puny avatar; why in the name of God?

Show me a single religion condemning

As blasphemy, the biggest sin of all,

Speaking in the name of God.

Puny avatar;

Why in the name of God?

Allah, Jehovah, Krishna, Buddha

Show me a single religion

Not inaugurating a President

In the name of a God.

Not haranguing the troops

In the name of a God.

Not persecuting other religions

In the name of a God.

Puny avatar; why are you hiding your weaknesses

In the name of a God?

Are you scaring me with eternal fire?

Is a candle burn not bad enough?

Are you frightening me to obedience by eternal pain?

Millions are suffering constant pain in hospitals, tents, in open air;

Of curable diseases, famine, thirst,

No pain-killer powerful enough to let go in peace.

Isn’t a single case bad enough to you?

Are you enticing me for immortality?

Anything scarier than boring immortality?

Puny avatar; why are you heaping your ignorant arrogance on me

In the name of a God?

Is there a single religion with enough imagination?

A total silence preceding a major cataclysm as God.

A complete darkness, not a candle flickering.

A world devoid of the feeling of touch;

Not a single soft breeze, not a wet loving kiss.

A world odorless and tasteless as God

Any one of that kinds of Gods would scare the hell out of me

And you won’t have to preach in his Name.

Puny avatar; talk in the name of God

And stay this dwarf: petty, mean, and coward.

Mankind! Stand up; wake up.

Dare speak in the name of Man.

Take on your responsibilities in the name of mankind.

Embrace your countless limitations;

Develop your limitless potentials.

Pray your God in the solitude of your heart;

Give grace to your God in the many ways to enjoying life;

For the opportunity to working with passion and sweating labor.

Puny avatar you were and is

In the name of God.

Try speaking in the name of man

With respect and humility to your fellow co-survivors

Sharing the same boat, the toil, hardship, and labor.

Sharing the smiles, joy, laughter, and compassion

Sharing what earth has in reserve to us all.

Singing with birds, the breeze, the sea wind.

Avatar you are and will be

And puny no more.
