Absolutely Useless

To quench a scorched travelers thirst; all that was required was a tiny well with sparkling water,
The entire ocean with its boundless number of volcanic waves; the infinite assemblage of salty liquid proved to be absolutely useless.

To appease a famished beggars hunger; all that was required was the minuscule little cluster of appetizing cherries,
The entire tree with its innumerable branches; the tons of green foliage protruding out in surplus abundance from towering heights; proved to be absolutely useless.

To construct an impoverished man’s dwelling; all that was required was frugal chunks of earth scattered around the placid pond,
The entire desert with its unfathomable territory of sand; the countless billions of slippery granules impregnated in its heart; proved to be absolutely useless.

To pacify the infants incessant crying; all that was required was the passionate embrace of the holy mother,
The entire armory of traditionally embellished attendants; the toys worth millions of rupees from every part of the continent; proved to be absolutely useless.

To provide rest to a priest having walked unrelentingly since the last 10 days; all that was required a clean slab of stone; with rustic chirping of the sparrows putting him to eternal rest,
The entire palace; adorned with a festoon of ostentatious lights; golden couches sprawling all around; proved to be absolutely useless.

To illuminate the life of a blind man; was just a shoulder he could lean upon; share his inconsolable tale of bizarre distress,
The entire street flooded with brilliant lights; dazzling flames of ferocious fire escalating high towards the sky; to be absolutely useless.

To add a smile to the life of a bird; all that was required was to leave it in free space; where it could soar high and handsome under the blanket of stars and moon,
The entire zoo with silver cages; the contemporary shelter enveloped with chains; proved to be absolutely useless.

To trigger off enormous jubilation in the eyes of the dog; engender its tail to unceasingly wag; all that was required was to place its master in front of his body,
The entire dungeon stashed with biscuits of gold; the colossal pile of shimmering bones lined with meat; proved to be absolutely useless.

To satisfy the last desire of a dying man; with his breath being limited only to a few more seconds; all that was required was his loved ones engulfing him and supporting him from all sides,
The entire reception to felicitate him for his life time achievements; the grandiloquent extravaganza with stringent music blaring in his respect; proved to be absolutely useless.

And to make me live; blissfully exist on the surface of this earth; all that was required was the captivating perception of my omnipotent God; the unprejudiced and revered face of my mother; and the flames of sizzling romance emanating from the body of my beloved,
The entire Universe with its riches; the fascinating and marvelous scenery it had to offer; the flamboyantly sculptured jets transporting me virtually to even the remotest part of the jungles; proved to be absolutely useless.
