Fear not my Heart πŸ’”

Fear not, my heart

Even the darkest night

Must end at dawn!

Clouds come,

Clouds go;

But they can’t rob,

Sun’s radiant glow.

Make God thy pole star;

Look up, mine eyes

At thy guiding star!!


Is His tender blessing

He will never

Hold it back.


It glorifies the life,

It exalts the life,

And makes our

Lives divine.

Keep yearning,

Keep toiling, my soul

Peace will come;

When thy toil is done!!

  1. You are always welcome kindly, Ashok. Yes, each religion reveres different gods and I do respect all beliefs and rituals as long as they are not fanatic and totalitarian. Therefore, I also respect yours in India. However, God is conceived, at least in the majority of our world’s religions, as male and hardly ever as female as a result of patriarchal societies. I do not want matriarchy either because I do not want supremacy of one gender over the other. Yet if I want equality of rights and duties for women, men and transexual people I cannot humanise God as a male; I actually cannot humanise God at all but, if so, I could only see this entity having androginous characteristics. I think our entirety of world religious need to adapt to the 21st century. But, OK, putting all this apart your poem is just lovely, heartfelt. You are very talented, Ashok. Keep posting such great pieces! πŸ™β€

  2. Thank you so much Marta. You are very kind.
    There is nothing God is not. God is Love and love and love doesn’t have any gender. But while writing – somehow it doesn’t sound so good writing of God as She! It is what is in our minds and thoughts, which is more important I think.
    In india we revere Ram and Sita; and Radha and Krishna equally and many of us revere Radha more β€οΈπŸ™

  3. A beautifully written, spiritual poem, showing faith in God (still just personified as a male entity, as I said I find it hard to humanise God and to conceive suh entity just as male?). Anyway, your poem is very well written. I like it very much as well as your great photos. You are very talented, Ashok! Keep up with your lovely work and blessings. – Marta


    β™‘ WOW!!! EveryOne; what a Wonderful Way for Parent to Confuse Kids by calling them Athletes and Putting them Under Stress and Pressure…I AM Blessed with an “athletes” body but I AM Really Fucking Lazy because of this sort of Disciplinary Drivel that is Delivered by a Certain Kind (pun intended) of Parent who Screams Abuse at Their Own Child from The Sidelines for Mean, Perceived UnderPerformance; I AM a sports fan and I AM in AWE of Kids who do not have Athletes Bodies but Find Their Own Way to Running Faster than I Used To, it’s No Wonder Athletes, such as Tennis Players and, for that matter, some Sporting Teams, regularly Change their Coaches πŸ˜§πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜’
