Cynical About Religions...

Cynical About Religions...

A Poem by Dawn



Religion, I never understand
the praying to holy statues and
the rosary beads.

Let alone
confession your sins to a preacher.
So does that mean if you killed
someone and you told him?
He would never tell the police on you?

And all this hatred between Religions across
the world. Makes me laugh out loud.

Instead of accepting each other's religion.
They kick off and try to kill each other.

And so many religions to choose from in
this world.

It like, let's choose which one.  I will believe in
too?
That suits my thinking.?

Crazy is as crazy does?

When most of the wars and upsets,
That happened in this world is due to religions and beliefs.

I am just so cynical of late. About everything.
Including religion.

But I do understand humans need something good
to believe in. But when I see so much destruction
due to religion. It makes me wonder. If anything
good comes from it at all.

Who knows... honestly..

Ah religion. Such a confusing topic. I don't think it's just a random pick; I think it's what most draws to you... A connection. And it is sad that religions try to destroy each other. I think the one thing that gets me the most is "one is right; the rest are wrong.... Which one is the correct religion?"
that's what I Ponder the most...

you make some stark observations on a complicated subject. "religion" is expressed outwardly. i prefer spirituality and faith which is on the inside but still manifests outwardly. Christians and other believers in God have been persecuted for centuries and as you point out have gone to war and fought over it. It's hard to not defend oneself when persecuted or treated unfairly (turn the other cheek so to speak). excellent, thought-provoking write ... :)
