Outsider

Sometimes…
Walking on my own
Veering away from the travails of life,
Apathetic aboutautumnal sunshine.

Even in a deep cave
My inner eyes blaze.
In the light of the Silvery Moon
I can reach my journey's end.

For not being worldly-wise
Many people label me outsider.
For fame and gains
Fools rush in
Where "angels fear to tread".

Devotion

Faith may devastate
But in disparity or grief
Dear Lord,
My faith in you never loses ground.
And you are
My never-ceasing source of solace.

Excruciated by need and greed
We embroil ourselves in disputes.
Goodness faces ordeals every moment.

O Lord!
On bended knees
I beseech you,
Only you can bring back peace.
If none cries in paradise,
Why do we on earth
Where all your lovely creations
Strive to survive?

(The poet writes from Ohio, USA)
