I looked upon the sky one peaceful night
While I was gloomly strolling ‘long the shore.
A gaze at stars so countless and so bright
Had made me think about my grief no more.


I pondered over planets’ splendid grace;
Of black holes, comets, all the glorious things.
I longed to see the great Creator’s face
To thank Him for the joy His handwork brings.


But men today say there is no Divine,
Convinced that all was brought forth just through fate.
“From specks to worlds we know of,” they explain,
“And wonders went on blooming to this date.”


But see from birth of space to man’s advance.
Oh, how could these have happened all by chance?

I liked your poem a lot. I think you did a great job with all the idioms you used. My favorite idiom you used was plondering over planets. I think your poem was full of figurative language.

I LOVE THIS SONNET!! i am a religious person, and i've thought about chance and the Creater (GOD) since probably when i was five! I really like the messege of this poem and can't wait to read more!! fate isn't something to mess with, but it all had to start somewhere. an explosion cant magically create life!

Wow, this was so amazing. I was watching a program the other night about how the universe was made, and I have to completly agree with the author. How could all this and us happen by chance? A beautiful sonnet, creativly written with an inspiring message. Thanks!

all I can say, is that is awesome... and so true.  no one seems to think about the Higher Power to all, the Great Creator... none of this ever could've happened by chance...

I really liked the point of the poem, wondering if everything happened by chance. I like the rhyme scheme(:

This poem is truly fantastic, because it portrays the world in a manner which is beautiful to everyone. It's appeal lies in the perspective it provides. Though it has a religious message, it isn't forceful. If a person like me, very non-religious, could appreciate this, then it truly is amazing writing.
