We're Never Alone
and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
While watching the sea breathing in and out
nagging truths lap at the shores of my doubt.
And I search the sky for traces of God
amongst trillions of stars scattered about.
Walking upon the same sands martyrs trod
I view their restrictive beliefs as flawed.
For I do not believe in damnation
or else the concept of love is a fraud.
Morals form the soul’s primary foundation
sin is yielding free will to temptation.
And these thoughts cascade like unceasing waves
as I contemplate hell and salvation.
Obsessed by what may lie beyond our graves
we willingly become religious slaves.
And seek guarantees scared of the unknown
reassured by the belief Jesus saves.
I cannot comprehend God on a throne
or that we are born with sins to atone.
For I believe that God's eternal love’s
unconditional, we’re never alone.
