This Will Offend

This Will Offend.

The prejudice lurks,
a gestating beast,
hate masquerading as faith,
intolerance as belief,
righteous tongues mouth prayers,
beseeching Him for tax-relief.

I tire of the sermons,
spewed forth each day,
threatening damnation,
promising paradise,
blanketed in the cosy comfort,
of carefully crafted lies,

Do not waste your breath here,
I refuse to succumb to your wiles,
take your God elsewhere,
He is not welcome now,
leave me to my fate,
for I refuse to bow.

    Thousands of years relentless brainwashing.....I see relief......She is blowing our way, She calls for her children to be brave and strong. For She has seen and felt the pain. We help Her, we help ourselves. Have read a lot of your written thoughts.....agree wholeheartedly. Thanks for sharing
