A highway to heaven
They who created him above
Claim to have
Despite their hands
Washed in the blood of all who oppose
Their reverential unchanging dogma

Centuries of blinding
Those that willingly believe
Has embolden those that
Profess to know the
Secrets of life and of eternity

How loud they cry of the holiness of
God’s divinity
They denounce all but
The complex mutually exclusive tenets
They forcefully expound

Up on high is salvation
One usually starts the journey
After languishing in a grave
No one has yet returned
To tell tales of nirvana above

You must believe what your senses say
Is definitely untrue
If you do not it’s the inquisition for you
Giving two fingers to
The creed of live as you will
Those that have a control streak
Lambast any wavy interpretation
Of life on this earth

We must cherish our individuality
Groupings abound
But you must never forget
To ask – what about me ?

Religion is a celebration
Of our living on this earth
We should celebrate him above
And not dogma
Preached with bellicose sentimentality

Clues in nature suggest a powerful
Presence among us
A seed encapsulates the wonders
That his might can achieve
A tree is his gift to us he loves

Rods of insensitive philosophy
That the tenets of faith expound
Show humanity as its most brutal
Why cant we just be at peace
And not be harassed by religiosity

When a man needs another to know his maker
He can easily be fooled
No active intelligence is needed
Nor access to a creed
To know him
That fulfils our needs

God is love
Hope gives peace
Kindness and fraternity is to be cherished
Love your brother
No matter what his faith
