I wiped up my religion
to polish to a shine
a sparsely decorated faith
yet faith that is still mine.
I excercise the right to choose
to stray from safer paths –
I believe in a creator
who will be no god of wraths.
I do not worship idols
and the Bible tells me so,
to me that’s how your God appears
so I won’t ‘believe’, whoa, no!
The Bible is a good book,
compiled by sometimes evil powers,
so I cannot take it at its’ Word
and still that right is ours.
I certainly respect your choice,
while free to make my own –
you may never yet convince me
there must be God at Heaven’s throne.
