English Poetry

“There is but One God”
a fact that shows up
in almost every belief
every faith based on the One

But is there just one God?
I bet there are Two
With darkness for light
hatred for love
Sadness for happiness
evil for good
balancing out each other
It may be safe to presume
‘God’ must be needing too
Someone to balance his ‘Good Self’

An ‘Alter-God’ latent, relaxing
with a deliberately small presence
in the cosmic real estate
and like Itself,
Its forces are latent as well
or maybe so it appears
consuming minds, finding weaknesses
and exploiting them
just to keep up the value of  ‘Good’
Not necessarily evil
if I may be semantically biased
but just like the ‘God’ we know
utterly incomprehensible

    There is One and The One is Three Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh

    The day belongs to Lord Brahma
    The night to the Great Lord Shiva
    And the period in between
    Is what belongs to the Preserver

      Sir, the Gods you mention are not the One ultimate God that scriptures tell.
      Brahma Vishnu and Mahesh were created by the Almighty, and if you have read some of the scriptures, you will find that Lord Shiva , for example, meditate and connect with the Supreme Power

      And this very Supreme Power is what I mean when I use the term God, and it is this Supreme power whose counter side is what I mention here

    as we conceive things so the reality..or so we convince ourselves..sometimes.

    A topic that has no end. And everyone’s perception of The Almighty might vary. But I do agree with you that He is “utterly incomprehensible”
