A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



What do you believe in?

I’m asked, when protest

Beads in, on strings of thought

A natural zinging, of resonance.


What do you believe?

The next level of probing

In the inquisition of Faith

To pigeon-hole a generation.


Do remove the interrogator

I retort, and let the question determine.

They acquiesce, perplexed.

Do you believe?” Ha!


You are not of the Faith

They proclaim – brand you thus

If you were one, they argue,

Question us, dare you?


I believe, Oh! I do.

In the essential faith, I carry

Not in a retributive power

But in flawed humanity

That shall, ever, questing, make

Discoveries, within and without.


The zenith of our possibility

The nadir of our actions.


And, believing, we too can believe

In our own selves –

Pray to a forgiving power.

The ONE within, to help, the ONE WITHOUT.

WordPress and I have now crossed a decade together! Hell yeah! Thank you WP, for being that one place that always makes space for the words that sometimes visit, and for never complaining, when I do not visit 🙂

  1. Belief in one’s values should be strong
    Belief in one’s faith should be long
    Belief in one’s religion
    Shouldn’t be a contagion
    To be forcibly spread amongst those who don’t belong!

  2. Right from the times of Adam and Eve
    the question has been who do you believe
    The answer has always made someone grieve
    All one can do is pray for a balm to relieve.

  3. I like this one, too. 🙂 And I hope that we never stop believing.


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
