Religion - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Oh Religion, oh Religion! !
How you've cheated me of my true lover;
How can i hope for far too long without a lover?
How can i meet my lover with this dichotomy?
How can i cry when, i have found my partner?
Oh Religion, oh Religion! !
My pillow is not enough to dry out my tears.

Region, Religion!
Like the River Jordan, so are my tears;
For, you've cheated me of my true lover.
She was my soul partner on this earth.
Oh Safi! How can i easily forget you?

You've really touched my heart!
And, now that i know the truth, what can i do?
Region, Religion!
Do i have to cry forever? !
For, i am now stocked in your dreams.

What can love do when, Religion blocks the way?
I am now stocked in the faith of my hope,
I am now stocked in the journey of my dreams,
I am now stocked on you.
Could it be true? !
When, Religion plays its role;
Certainly, i am now stocked on you;
And, i know how you feel over there.

Oh Safi! The love of my heart;
You are certainly the dream of my dreams! !
Deep down in my heart;
And, i have now got a companion who cares about me.

What have i done to you, 'Mr. and Mrs. Religion'? !
Love knows no bounds;
But, Religion does block many of our dream-lovers!
Oh Religion, how you've cheated me of my sweet lover;
But, creation brought us out from the same source!
However, with the laws of curiosity, we are divided today;
Tell me, how cruel is life?
