This is a short poem about the earth narrating the condition of human beings, and what they should do.

The Truth Unseen

 

(Narrated by the Earth)

 

The second I was born,

 

I had nothing at all that you see.

 

You were not yet present, and none knew what I’d be.

 

Never did I disobey the one, who created me,

 

So should you always be.

 

The truth’s very clear, yet remains unseen,

 

That we all were nothing at all,

 

And so shall we again be.

 

I don’t equal even a wing of a bee,

 

In the eyes of the one who created me.

 

But you were sent here for being tested,

 

To show your worth, or else get wasted!

 

So show your worth, and pay the price,

 

To get what is called as the paradise!

Very profound poem, I like 'the truth's very clear, yet remains unseen'--it sort of relates to our politics here, even though it's about religion

Beautiful poem, I like it even more because it involves elements of space. For me, I'm always interested in hearing about how people believe things like the earth and the universe were created, it's hard to comprehend given it's hard to think about events before our lifetime. Your flow, rhythm and rhyming were all great, well done!

Thanks for the comment!
The beauty and greatness of the creation speak about the qualities hidden in the creator.
That's why God gave us intelligence and knowledge,
Telling us to know about his hidden power by observing what is around us.
Nobody has yet created such wonderful memory and data storage systems like what each cell in our body has!

Very contemplative. I like the simplicity of your prose to describe something profound. It's a nice contrast.

Well written. I like your phrase “truth as unclear and unseen”. Speaks of faith and that life doesn’t after death.

Love the humility of the earth in this poem, especially in our big world, we make things so complicated.
