Freedom Of Speech Hurts

Freedom of speech hurts

When offered with hate in mind.

Pious hypocrites,

You hide behind religion

Twisting the words of your God!

What would Christ have done!

He’d overturn your tables

And dump your self righteous coins

Like the vile money changers in your book

That’s what comes to mind

In the end, who will be judged

You or those you persecute?

Perhaps a look in the mirror is in order.

It Isn’t My Place

It isn’t my place

To impose judgement on you

I am not perfect

.

My flaws glisten in the sun

Like a mirror to my soul

Look Into Their Eyes

Look into their eyes,

Can you see the glory in their souls,

Do you feel the oneness…

Their fibers intertwined with yours in this earthly plane?

Journey deep within,

It is there,

Hiding where it has always been…

Your humanity.

I do not believe in your hatred!

How can you look into the eyes of a child

And wish them harm?

How can you hear the cries of a mother for her son

And deny her pain?

How can a line drawn in the sand

Damn a man to certain death in the vicious desert?

Is their blood not red as yours?

Feel the beat of your own heart,

See beyond what your narrow vision shows,

Realize that you are nothing more than them!

Judgement day will reveal your fate by word and deed

Leaving you to find that YOU–

Just may be the least among men.

Under Attack

Christianity…

Some claim it’s under attack,

An imagined war.

Practice whatever you please,

But don’t force it on others

 

I guess church and state

Are only kept separate

When it’s convenient.

Life Altering Change

Life altering change

Whether for better or worse,

Unavoidable.

At times they can bring on tears

Whilst at others there is joy.

 

Perhaps perfection

Does not come without its pain

Though perfect it is.

Everything’s as it should be

In the eyes of the Divine.

 

We are intertwined

With others on this journey,

Friends, kin and strangers

Struggling to understand.

Who would I be to judge them?

 

Should I not just love,

Embracing their inner light

And divine essence.

Honoring them as sacred

As I wish to be honored.

Believe As You Will

“Believe as you will”,  you say,

“I can respect that”, you say with a smile.

In your heart of hearts you are only tolerating,

You know they are wrong,

They don’t believe as you do so they must be wrong.

It matters not that we share this same walk together,

They have the same pains,

They have the same hopes,

They have the same dreams,

They fear,

They mourn loss,

They live and die just as you do,

But yet you self-righteously sit in judgement.

Is that what your God wants,

Is that what my God wants,

I seriously doubt it.

If you wish to be judge and jury,

Look no further than the heathen within

And you will find plenty of crimes to punish.
