Not a Stone - Believe

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

Not a Stone - Believe

Not a Stone - Believe

Not a stone

But alive

Not an idol

But divine

Not a symbol

But the truth

It is

Not me

But you

Believe


To believe is to have faith; have faith in something that you believe.

Beautiful and thoughtful poem.

If we believe, we have hope, and hope is significant in our lives. It’s all a matter of belief. We worship the God, in the form of a stone, as well.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem.
