From my poetry collection Tree.


SIN


I am writing for all the dead ants,their death being a tear in my eyes.

It is a sin,to walk on small animals indifferent for their pain.
But who is the sinner here?

Ants,cockroaches,spiders,flies.
Each of them from human dies.
Who is there to cry for them?
Who is their suffocating why to hear?

What is their purpose on life?
To put more sins on humans soul?
To live their life without a voice and choice?

God is absent from their life and death.
Thus humans become murderers at an instant.

I am just walking but in the same time i am killing ants which i can't see.

Is that a sin?
Or is it God's sin?

Am i too blind to see the reason
behind the unreasonable?


Just thinking....

As one who walks in nature I have had the same thoughts. You expressed them is a kind and thoughtful way.

I've been missing your poems.

All life is dependent on each other
That dependence is so fragile
When a species is threatened
Then ALL SPECIES IS THREATENED!

Josephus said it as I believe it is. Everything, everyone, is part of the whole. If there is sin in what your poem describes, then there has to be intent. Intent is what it is all about.

If God is in all things and all things are God then even the smallest microbe is Godlike and worthy of love, just as all of us are
