Maybe I'm Just A Lost Soul


Nothing personally, but I'm one of those people that thinks it is not god that needs my kind words, or love but other humans.
He gets, my prayer, my faith, my despair.
But to live, I must believe there is something I can do for the people here before anywhere else.
Not in the sky, not in molten lava.
Time is precious and should not blatantly wasted.
If god rejects me for it.
So be it, I will have live with that.
But I will not watch others suffer in pain in vain.
It's a crying shame we have more people that love God then there very own.
A screwed up twisted embrace.
A practice that grinds at my very bones.
My heart aches for so many, so many who are all alone.
No comfort, no solace, no angel without broken wings.
Maybe I have lost my way, or maybe it is you who has traded your love for your faith.
When deaths comes, I will smile and say I did all I could.
He will ask me why I didn't you love god more.
I will say because my fellow man, woman, and child was more important.
He will ask me aren't you afraid burning in hell for all eternity.
I will say most certainly but fear is no reason to abandon humanity no matter the credence or god.
Enough have already have done this.
I will not be another one of religions shameless victims.

    You are Certainly no lost Soul. To want to help others is a gift that we all need. Yes Religion has and still is creating heartache and killing. Yet to others in time of need it can be beautiful to seek that peace. For my work over the years I have been to many services and feel something amazing in these places of worship. Yet I am not religious. Please keep on doing all you can John (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
