We Are Not Alone
Once we carved our Gods out of stone,
life was harsh and prospects were grim.
Yet we felt we were not alone,
when odds of survival looked slim.
Seeking guidance outside of self,
God fills the gaps that make us whole.
Yet, often faith's placed on a shelf,
for no one likes to bare their soul.
Where conflicting truths fall apart,
arrogance and ignorance thrive.
For when doubt infiltrates your heart,
egos ensure scorn's kept alive.
God’s presence is hard to explain,
He's the embodiment of hope.
And His perfect love purges pain,
helping imperfect souls to cope.
Religion recruits the pious,
although faith comes in many forms.
And preachers are often bias,
adhering to accepted norms.
