If you have no love and mercy in your heart,
how can you claim to love God?
If you have no compassion and empathy,
why do you expect God to emphatise with you?
If you have no forgiving spirit,
why would you want God to forgive you?
If you are a tyrant in your ways,
your beliefs and your actions,
why do you expect God to shower you with His kindness?
If you live a life of only taking,
why would you expect God not to take it away?
If you do not want to understand the diverse colours
and languages that God created,
why do you expect God to understand you?
If you steal in creative ways,
why do you expect God to keep the wealth in your possession?
If you live a life of deceiving others,
why you do expect not to be deceived by your own self?
If you destroy lives in creative ways,
why do you expect your loved ones to be safe?
If, as a mere transient mortal you are arrogant,
why should not God humble you?
If you are forever distinguishing yourself above others,
why should God not differentiate you below others?
Are we forever asking but never doing?
Are we forever saving other souls, never our own?
Are we forever being religious but never a human being?
Are we forever form but never substance?
Let the mirror speak,
for it is enough as a witness
