Silly Catholics, Forgiveness Is For Sins - Poem by I AM THAT MOUSE

your faith is buried in doctrine and law
and i don't know how to find salvation
as you lead into this tempation
of leaving you behind me.

listening to pulpit preach the homily
forgiving killers and sentencing sins
this is how the cycle begins
for the wayward baptised.

i'm regretting the years i wasted on you
silly catholics, i see through your plan
endoctrining laws created by man
and using hell to instill that fear.

i don't know how to believe anymore
or what was real and what was not
a soul sold that the altar bought
with its tabernacle of riches.

you taught me little on who to love
but told me plenty of who to hate
& now i fear you sealed my fate
by not giving me a choice.

i turn my back on what was said as truth
the sins of the church are now my own
& i much rather wander to heaven alone
than to say i believed your stories.

i have one last thing before i walk away
i leave you with this pledge of exclusion
to never let my children believe your illusion
so maybe they have a chance to be saved.
