The Man's Hope, by Temitope Otokiti
Mood:  lyrical
Topic: Religion

Man hastens for nought and forth

Going up and down the north

From an Irish pole

To seek the pot of gold in the hole

Like a rat in a cage

So does pain come with age

Should man live by bread When he has not got a bed?

Bread comes when the bed is laid

For it is not a man-made Nor words men said

But from God comes the aid.

God, by Karanam Rao
Mood:  happy
Topic: Religion
I don’t know whether
You are a noun
Or pronoun,
A person or personification,
A symbol or syntax
Of thought.

All that I know is that
you exist somewhere,
Beyond those conglomerate
Beyond the edges of
The horizon,
Shaping our destinies
From life to death,
And back again,
In an endless cycle of
Creation and dissolution.

I still hear your foot steps
Behind me and see your face
In the crystalline waters
Of the running brooks
As silence trying
To break into the sounds
Of prayer.

Karanam Rao
