This poem might get me killed

This poem may upset a few people In a world of drama, pain and hate, how can I write something peaceful I'm always honest with my feelings, never will I mislead you Religion is the root of all evil Hating another cause they have a different belief Some can't see the bigger picture like their visions weak So many different religions, all believing the same lies How many gods do you think are living in the same sky? I'd like to believe that someone is out there But let me explain why there's doubt here Kids get kidnapped, abused, raped and killed Females get abused and raped, the hate is real Murderers and rapists get a second chance when they chose to dance with Satan But where's the justice for the life lost of that little 4 year old cancer patient? If you believe in a god, then I hope you find one in the sky We get judged based on tattoos and hoodies, but the real criminals wear suits and ties Sit behind a desk, and make us a bunch of false promises Presidents and politicians hold us all as hostages We're left to suffer from the choices they make Then they want us to be the voices they erase Going to war killing a bunch of innocents In hopes of killing the one or 2 extremists who locked people in a burning building Then they tell kids to keep the violence to a minimum see some sick twisted guy, run into a school and kill a bunch of learning children He gets a 5 year sentence and then he'll get out This whole world is a mess now I'm sick to death of seeing the kardashians everywhere Caitlyn Jenner just had a new sex change, she's now a Teddy bear Kim's wearing a new dress, quick let's all make a big deal The kardashians get more news coverage, than kids killed I'd rather be locked in a cage with a tiger, than hear about tyga and Kylie Jenner The news give the kardashians a headline and then its smiley center Because it takes people's minds off real issues for the time being They try and lock you in a bubble so you don't have your freedom I tell the truth, but they don't want you to think like this They won't want me to use the ink like this But I'm only saying how I feel I'll write a part 2 soon, unless this poem gets me killed

Speaking many truths in this, no complaints here, and to each their own.

Thank you, I had a lot more to say, but held back, and also so I could write a part 2 at some point, I agree to each their own
