Broken Religion

Broken Religion

A Poem by Emily Dickinson Jr.

My friend cassie had her heart broken when her boyfriend of years condemns her for not being a christian.




How can you say you love her

Nibble at her neck


Express your love endowed

Behind a discreet net


Then when you fall away

Tell playmate

Time for no play


Say such evil things

Let a mean side shine


Ridicule your choices

Even if they're not sublime

Because she tells you

She's not christian


You call out "Devil Worshiper!"


You know not your words

Nor what they do to her


You don't know religion

You only can assume


Ignorant boy

I won't employ

You're words littered with harsh doom


My friend I'll always stay

Protect you from his words


How could such enviable

Cushioned love

Turn to nothing but a curse


Just becuase your Pagan

Doesn't mean 'not pure'


She's still the most innocent

The very purest, girl next door


Just because nature

Welcomes her embrace

Doesn't mean you should acuse

Like barbarians with Flames and Mace


She says it's who she is

yet you don't really care

Can't you see the hurt Littering up her Stare


Johny Johny no

You have better leave

For your insensitivities

Cause many hearts to bleed


I will not now ever grieve you

Only my friend's heart from where you stayed

But now I will condemn you

For ever having led her astray

So sad.
(Religion ,race and class are nothing when it comes to love. I live in a community where muslims are the majority.The muslim leaders always tell muslims not to intermarry with christians but i have seen many men marrying muslim women,muslim boys dating christian girls. It's a juvenile and a foolish thought.

Nice poem.

In my life, I've found that religion doesn't neccesarily make a person good, and sometimes it makes them stupid.
