Why Did You Make Me? A Pig’s Complaint to God

POETRY FORMAT, 28 Dec 2015

Dr. M. Ashaq Raza – TRANSCEND Media Service

Oh Almighty Allah
Oh God of heaven and Hell
Oh Creator of oceans and earth
Oh Lord of living and dead
Oh maker of every creature
One question, Wallah
Just please tell
Why did you make me
Why did you send me on earth?

These Muslims, your Muslims
Why they hate me so much
They don’t want to see me
They don’t call even my name
What did I do to them?
In which way
I’m different from them?
Am I really unwanted?
Am I ugly, smelly, dirty

Did you tell them to hate me?
Or they themselves hate me
Tell me oh Lord, tell me
Why did you make me?
But I am still very happy
At least they don’t eat me
Like many others do
Thanks God, I am happy
And, I know, you love me
