Could Divine Love Be Stripped of Dividing Symbols: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Whether it's Christian or Hindi heart

there is no label of love that better sells

and it just looks so futile to be really smart

over difference of church's or holy cow's bells.

Symbols that divide us in faith and reason

made of human history such a crazy story

with loving and hating having their season

and an insane violence basking in its glory.

Where are those gods when human heart is cold

like some heavenly cops hiding at dark places

feasting on holy doughnuts in chariot of gold

only in some books showing their faces.

Wouldn't love be better with no fancy dressing

into those symbols confusing human mind

nakedness is always more of blessing

whether love's divine or of other kind.

Indeed, love is same in child and in a sinner

hearts beating same under any kind of skin

there is no need to call one of them cleaner

as no one is sinless to accuse other of sin.

So, could we proclaim such a stripping as divine

freeing our hearts from symbols and names

from every label and discriminating sign

free from all those separating games.
