The Robbed Hope.

 

What is living without hope?

It is, an artist without his art,

A painting without colours.

 

What is living without faith?

It is, a song without the tunes,

And dance without music.

 

What is life without belief?

It is a story without characters,

A story without words.

 

Oh, the robbed hope is back again,

The hope which I had always lived by,

The hope which my spirit held so dear,

It has come out of its hidings.

The idea of God

John Donne has got the conception of a wrathful God intent on punishing those who go against His commandments.

But Crashaw is altogether a different breed. He is a radiant spirit who feels perfectly assured of his salvation to God. Crashaw’s God is generally the God of love who cannot bear to see the misery of His creation.

And as always I am still confused. What is the truth? Can He be as gracious as to forgive even our gravest sins or is it vice versa? Can he really punish us for the deeds that are not supposed to be performed in His creations?

If Karma exists then of course we will be punished but then how can God see his own children suffer the retribution?

Is he wrathful or the God of love?
