A Prayer (Pt.6) For the Religiously Confused

Dear Spiritual Father
Im beyond the point of confusion
Its like no matter what decision I make
I'm the one losin'.
Each step closer to religion
is a closer step to insanity.
Friends and family,
they pick Christianity.
Family and friends,
the pick the side of the Musilum.
Both wants me to be the same,
so what's the point in choosin' any of them?
Some call you Jesus.
Some call you Allah.
Being as pure as you are
the only title you should have
is father.
That is if you were to have
an Earthly name.
I myself don't want anything
to do with religion.
As long as I believe in what's pure
what will be the point in changin'?
In this I pray,
that insanity won't have my heart to claim;
I am but A-man

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
