God is Near: A Poem by Leela Satyan

He is as close or as distant, as you perceive He is
On you knees, submit yourself to the Supreme commander
Just a prayer away is the consolation to your tribulation
The solace to your hurt, the calm to your storm

If you think that’s debatable, you are holding a candle of flickering faith
Refill your lantern of hope with the fuel of renewed faith
Then witness a miracle spree your life transforms into
Igniting the dead spark of faith in the souls you encounter

Akin to the dawn driving away the dead of night
The Almighty desires you to dispel the disguised satan
Who’s forever on the mission to disrobe you off the holy attire
That Christ had bought with His blood shed on the cross
