A thank you note to God in the background of today’s war.
I THANK YOU, GOD: award winner


Thank You God for what You gave
To me in Your wisdom.
When You are with me I feel
I am in Your kingdom.

I thank You that I was not
Born in Iraq desert,
Where the bombs of invaders
Do widely kill and hurt.

I thank You that You did not
Make me elect all those,
Whose arrogant, vile folly
In all their actions shows.

Thank you God I belong to
A country that truly
Shuns violence and does not
Invade others freely.

But God even if I had
Been born in countries those,
It would have been through Your will,
Welcome to me, of course.
