In and Out of Religion


Suffering inside religion
Drives Soul outside the religion
Suffering outside religion
Drives Soul inside the religion
As two men were
They stayed in the same town
In the same house
For five years


One a pious
He went to the temple daily
For religion ritual
Another atheist
He went to the bars and clubs daily
For drinks and funs
On the sixth year
They went out for adventure


The pious got into dangerous adventure
He got misfortune due to bad luck
He cursed his God and denounced his faith
The atheist got happy adventure
He got fortune due to good luck
He praised God and believed.
