Dying Religions

These fairytales of life we buy like shattered bits of humble pie,
They convolute and twist our minds far into a world where the true dream is denied,
We hold them high above what's real,
The wheel of life and what we feel gets wasted
In the dream beyond the chasms we create...far from love, and it's chasteness.
The dream is now, the only one, the stories we weaved,
Withered and dying in the gutters of the fold,
The time arrives for every man to unravel his mess within,
And let go the fairytales of old,

...allow this future to unfold.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Transformations and new worlds come to be only through the acknowledgements of many hands joined. Religions are not working in the world because the focus has not been on the religion, but on the power the religions can have. Just a poem.

Religious Focus On Power

...when the calling is to attend to the spirit - to prepare it for another kind of journey - I too am religious, I wear it under my collar and on the edge of my pockets - but sometimes...the discussion becomes a question of devils or angels. The world's religions are beautiful, then humans start interpreting the passages of holy text to suit their ends. Hmmmmmm... ~~A~~
