The Question

Rating: 5.0
I've asked this question before,
but I'm going to ask it once more,
If religion is right and your God has the might,
where is the need to bicker and fight?

How strong is the faith you subscribe to,
if it's strong then it needs no defence,
If the message it sends is divine,
it will be seen as being sublime.

If someone insults you, don't be so intense,
To feel you should kill him, it doesn't make sense,
And God, in his wisdom, will not take the blame,
For you using his name, in the killing game.

You cannot be more insulting to God,
than to take a life, that he has created,
For religion's sake, is the excuse that you make,
but that is just belated.

And we both know, that man is dead,
Because, he is someone you hated,
If religion espouses hatred and death,
Such doctrines came not from God's sweet breath.

Has religion represented God well on earth,
The Creator of all, since man's first birth?
Well Cromwell Massacred the Irish,
sinn fein killed 3000 up north,

In Gujarat, many Muslims were killed,
by Hindus I think you will find,
The Armenians were slaughtered by Turkish forces,
At the time, no one seemed to mind.

The biggest massacre the holocaust,
should never ever be forgotten,
Or else mankind is condemned to be,
forever truly rotten,

And it is from those who survived,
That a nation in hope, was derived.
If that hope can be shared for the good,
And all aspirations are mutually understood.

Then the hopes of a people who are just like you,
And if for a moment, you balance all points of view.
The Palestinian aspirations are easy to see,
they Just want control of their own destiny.
