Heavenly Father

Heavenly Father

God to the three religions

Why are we fighting

Men look for reasons to hate

In Allah, Yahweh, God’s name

Your Beliefs Guide You…

Your beliefs guide you…or misguide you

Like the dam trains the river.

We are born to know no hate,

No prejudice,

No racism,

No ascension of color,

This must be taught…instilled

By those who influence the young and malleable.

Children do not see difference,

To them a playmate is a playmate is a playmate

Until it is ruined by age.

O’ for us all to be children again,

Blind to race, creed and color

Returning the world to its purity,

Its wonder,

Its innocence,

Where we all would live in peace.

Fear Masquerading

Fear masquerading–

A disguise for the hatred

Lodged in feeble minds.

Isolationism calls

To quell the terror within.

Still you don’t see it,

You are giving them the win

And emboldening.

While we can’t change our sordid past

We can and must change our future

For the good of all mankind.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

He’s Called By Many Names

He’s called many names

God, Rom, Allah, Krishna, Christ

All are names of peace

It’s man who is violent

Not the Gods whom they worship

September’s blood moon

Expecting the End of Days

Words of pessimists

Under Attack


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.

Thirst Stinging My Throat

Thirst stinging my throat;

Dust and grime choke me of air.

Breathing is labored.

Thirsting for an oasis

I will drink sand to survive.


Could this be blind faith,

Utopia found in sand;

Trusting you’ll be quenched?

Isn’t this what religions

Teach is the only path to God?

The Disenfranchised

The disenfranchised

Looking to be powerful


Hopelessness and poverty

Feed this fast spreading cancer

Where does the blame lie

In the laps of governments

Religious fervor

Perhaps in weakness of mind

Our duty–cure the root cause
