I believe in God but not in the idols you created
I believe in religion but as ‘humanity’
I believe in prayers but not diluted by rituals
I believe God exists but not kept in structures
God is in you, within me and with me
My strength, my hope, belief and the truth
Don’t call me a Hindu, Muslim or Christian
Dare not spread hate in the name of my God
You can’t cage him in colours, books or symbols
He is a drop in the ocean, the breath and the universe
I am a free soul and so is my God.
