Love In Not In Religion - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

And it will never be
Intimidated into submission
Vowing to Force so meekly.

Love thrives in Truth
Will stand on solid ground
The only tree that will bear fruit
Of Wisdom, brave and sound.

Love aims the Good of all
In Fairness and Respect
Not in terror or control-
Tyranny, abuse, neglect.

So weigh which one is being true
Religion wears Deception's mask,
Their actions, they will all construe
When roots of these, are brought to task.

    religion can lead to divine Truth which leads one to love.
    Otherwise Love can have distorted meaning,
    shaped by societal trend and misconception or interpretation.
    How can one know the Truth without sound conscience which is formed properly
    By holy teacher.
    Man alone cannot teach man how to live and love due to our defects.
