To Act Now and Decide

We still perform rituals
That has been so casual
Just a belief and nothing else
Educated or scholars only shed tears

It continues and may do also
We have failed it to go
Still blind faith system
Who will go and tell them

We still blindly follow
Restrict others and do not allow
We have not seen or experienced
Yet we forward the reason and silence

We can understand religion and faith
We too can feel inevitability of death
Yet we argue about heaven and hell
Even though no one has gone there and felt well

We believe in strict secrecy
As if it is not seen by almighty
Try to amass or collect in short span of time
And miss it completely when lifted from earth early sometimes

It is nice to follow religion
It is equally good to help poor brethren
But why force on them some of the dictates?
When it does not seem to relate?

I love brilliant oratory
Put forward by religious heads in story
It is nice to hold masses in magic spell
As god is one and our existence speaks it so well

We feel shame when some scandals come in open
Their existence some in to jeopardy all of sudden
All of their preaching so far brings them to dark side
It is up to us, how to act now and decide

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
