the one commonly referred to as 'god'

 

 

 

 

you say you love your god

but you murder him every day

you rape him 

 

you tear the fingernails off

his loving hands

one by one, like lashes to your own back

 

and you 'know not what you do'

 

and destroy what has been given

so freely, and so lovingly

with your blame

 

you say he lives

his spirit is alive

you say he was a man

 

like yourself and your brother

a man that walked this earth

making footprints in the sand

 

and then you glorify his very death

over and over and over again

for the sake of your own unaccountability

 

do you also remember others 

passed on 

in this way?

 

i love you

and sometimes love is painful

but love goes on

 

jesus died and for me

he rests in the same peace he 

walked upon this earth

 

and his love

lives on in us all

love lives on

 

and on

and on

and on

 

my god is love

and i...love you

and that is how i share my god

Thanks, jessie. i'm glad you

Thanks, jessie. i'm glad you liked it. my religious background is that of Catholicism, but have since used it as a stepping stone towards onelove. (to be honest, i always thought there was something a little too sadistic about everyone loving to see a human being in that much pain...regularly, and often---idk...doesn't jive with me).

Thanks for commenting,

"the bad catholic" Wink
