In Hypocrisies Chapel

A Poem by Doodley
"

Sunday Tears

"
'Neath crucified eyes

Larmoyant from sinner's pain

Streaked stain glassed shadows

Genuflect jeremiads

Of an Atheist's love lost.

This marvelous poems , written by a thinker, tells me many things. First, religion can be so powerful or become so powerful that it corrupts the top echelon, causing multitudes upon multitudes of abuses to their adherents especially the vulnerable ones. All one has to do is read the history of every faith. Secondly, it gives rise to many hypocrites upon the adherents(there are some gullible and some genuine no doubt), that they act like sheep in wolves clothing. This subject is long and it will take volumes...
We all have to find our higher truth and peel off all the falsehoods, reject absolute power in man's hands, rid us of pagan doctrines and so forth. Most religions, even the Abrahaimic ones, borrowed from or share aspects of pagan doctrines and Astrotheology. Just see the similarities. It is mind boggling...

dear Doodley... our society is going through a time of Jeremiad feelings...
a prose of prophecy. Crucified eyes from sinners pain. The shadows of doubt
from stained glass windows. I shall always believe in the Holy Spirit and
feel that each of us are born with the Holy Spirit and that gives us hope and peace.
As for people who abuse that gift of Spirit... therein lies the mystery.
Your poetry has touched my heart and soul, and prayers ascend for all the
world to realize that we are the "Keepers" of the Spirit and will answer
along the way to eternity. Amen Pat

Well, I can't say I have much sympathy, said chapel lost my love long ago. They can snivel all they like but I'm not going to feel bad about it.
Good poem! The words alone are a treat to read, even without interpretation they inflict a feeling. Wars that have been fought and lost over things that don't exist, religion, folklore, humanities attempt to understand and control. Let them cry, knowledge is freedom.

......fantasy and fiction any day. I appreciate your time and thoughts on this poem.
whether strongly religious or atheist, we all have consciences and feel regret for things we do in life.

religion is no insulation from that.,..and when we lose love, we lose love...and there is pain...
again, a poem that reminds me of how some use that church on Sunday to feel they are free from damnation, no matter how they act toward their fellow men and women the other six days a week.
rife with thought provoking lines is this short piece...so well done.

It really is a shame how so many in positions of power give warped promises and false advice. They live out the sins they speak against under the eyes of their divine, and it ripples down through the hierarchy. Religion can be great in the right circumstances, providing a welcoming and happy community, and morals and lifelong guidance, but when corruption and hypocrisy strike, it's a terrible thing. Your work is always great.

lovely lamenting tone in this (couldn't figure out Larmoyant) I do enjoy the sufferings of the pious in relation to the loss of the following flocks when they give such exemplary existences to model in the name of God when in the true presence of the divine they would be jack-slapped!

You are welcome!
Ah, there is so much to be said about organized religion. Hypocrisy, conflict, judgment and many others best left unsaid. I'll leave my own opinions on the matter unsaid, but this short, sharp poem says a great deal. Or rather, it invites the reader to form their own message, to take from it what they will. I'll say it 'till Ragnarok is upon us: I always love your work.
