I wonder how the God turned deaf!
To feed ourselves with great food during festivals, we turn into a chef.
We dance over songs objectifying women,
We call this festival? Tell me how and from when?
Why do I need to yell on a mic or play irrelevant, filthy songs?
Are we really a thinking animal or to a demon’s family we all belong?
There is less of devotion and more of show-off,
Why do we yell, why can’t the speakers be off?
Do I need to show the world I am celebrating God,
When there is everything else in the celebration but, not God?
Is devotion all about making others know you’re celebrating while dancing on the road on songs so absurd…
Or is devotion more about your soul flying as free as a bird.
I understand that a huge congregation would need a speaker and spoc,
But why do nobody question the stupidity that follows… Why being a blinded flock?
Why I dance, touch women and do stunts in the name of worship?
Have we dropped our brain somewhere? How did it slip?
Why you dress so beautifully when the heart is still unclean?
Your evil thoughts and acts are still seen…
Do we help the poor, the marginalized, the one in need?
Their cry is much louder, for acceptance in the society they plead.
You hate and be jealous of your neighbour
And then ask God to bless you with fruits of labour?
I got an exam but, I can’t study coz they’re playing songs so loud to praise God.
I am sure, of your acts the God is not proud!
The boy in the next house just lost his father and isn’t in that state of mind.
But the society is celebrating God. To his pain, they all turned blind.
I ask you, have you ever questioned why playing games and loud music or cleaning houses is termed a festival?
For how long will we continue this illogical celebration?
Is my God deaf? Is the Almighty really looking for us to impress or do we have a bigger purpose?
Why have we turned worship into a circus?
Dear God, do you need the loud noise?
When we all know God doesn’t then, why do we not voice out our voice?
The poem is not about any particular religion, faith or community. Its about how we all have lost our senses. There is no more devotion or worship in our acts. We’ve taken everything for granted… even the GOD.
