THE GENERATION OF SELF


It is the dawn of a new day, the birthing of a new era

And a generation has arisen, a very unbelieving one
A new breed of mediocre minds
For in their quest to think big, they neglect the very Being Who created them and everything that encompasses them;

The beauty of tree and flowers, the aesthetic nature of plants
The wildness and mildness of the tides, the fascinating nature of the seas
The queerness of animals, even the mystical nature of the anatomy of man
Speak of a glorious Designer and Creator
That all these did not just come into existence
That there is a Mastermind behind all these
Yet this generation has chosen to turn a blind eye
Indeed, a generation of mediocre minds!
For eons, man has lived selfishly
But a new breed has arisen, one at its most selfish best
The selfishness of this breed has reached its peak and cannot arise any further
A pinnacle so fearful that God is taken out of the picture
They take credit and all the praise for what God has done
Even as they try to immortalize themselves, they relegate God to the background
Always seeking to bring up something “new”
Just so their names will go down to generations
Even generations yet unborn
“By my own strength and sweat did I this”, they always say
They always fail to give God the praise for His hand in it
A selfish breed indeed!
For ages man has worked hard and thorough
But a new race has surfaced, one that works hard in vain
A race of hardworking fools
They turn the world topsy-turvy just to “find” answers that are right before their eyes
On their march for modernization, they wear their bodies out to seek answers
Answers they already have, yet when they do “find” eventually
They twist the truth just so they do not go mad
For the answer always boils down to God
And their little minds, though knows this
Seeks another that is “more comforting”
Like “God is energy” and so forth
A funny and pathetic bunch they are
I shake my head almost always when I hear of them
Almost all of them take most of their lives to come to these funny conclusions
Wearing out both soul and body
Indeed! A race of hardworking fools they are
