A caboodle of stories, an account of legends,
Endless morals, a common promise of eternal life.
Proclaimed saviours preached to avert world's end,
Millenniums've passed, we still bleed by the knife.
Religion is a magnificent tool, anyone could use,
To control a divine power, the human mind's voodoo.
Canonical truth reduced to temple secrets is a ruse,
To divide and rule, fulfills the selfish greed of few.
Our world is a godly creation, or so we believe,
We pray for rain, thank for all that the soil yields.
Pumping poison into oceans, as an act to reprieve,
As Eden's coveted arcadia lay in elysian fields.
Love thy neighbor and forgive those who trespass,
It's the commandment that supercedes it all,
Yet, in the name of honour, we kill lovers, alas!
They're angels, not fearing the grave as they fall.
"We are all god's children", is a hypocrite's lie,
For we still aren't capable of foregoing archaic laws.
We fervently pray for poverty and inequality to die,
While the poor always beg outside temple walls. .
Prophets and messiahs of the old were never wrong,
It's the ignorant followers who befoul the truth.
Empty pride and unnecessary vengeance belongs,
To those who disrupt peace in society by the root. .
The magnitude of unwise decisions we've made,
Echoes rampantly throughout human history.
Much like thundering beats of a festive parade,
That delight a few, but for many, a mild misery. .
Societal priorities are waived by the power of greed,
Replaced by apocalyptic propaganda that uses faith,
To assemble puppet armies for a politician's need.
But soon,they will realise, being used as mere bait. .
Faith is to a person what creed is to a commune.
Harmony & unity are laws we should've made.
A statue isn't enough to change our civil fortune.
Spirituality is an inward journey, not a masquerade.
