You took innocence
sow seeds in maturing brain
create illusions
in the name of the father...
a lattice for prejudice.

    "In the name of father" many things are done and divide people. Reality is on boom. Lovely done, my friend.

    Schism - great word! Sounds a bit like applying a cheese grater on a tender turned cheek. I like how you send the reader on a journey with this one.

    Yes, sometimes religion can cause problems where a true belief in God and His Son Jesus don't cause that problem because it is all about true love or agape love...A love that is hard for mankind to understand or get a grasp around but a love that we should all strive for in our lives..Thanks for stopping by..Your review of my work is always uplifting..Sara

    harry this time you CAN make it more personal [subjective] and you CAN use metaphor, simile, personification etc...the last 2 lines should really show the emotions of the poet Light & Love kemosabe

    Oooo... very nice Harry, I like it... Terry (% thanks for your super kind comment!)...

    fine word choice... leaves the interpretation open to the reader...about religion? about family? It seems to me about religion.but perhaps I take the word schism too literally... Your work is intriguing and pleasantly discomforting..(like eating spicy food!) Victoria
