a dark path
by Lee Billings
Age Group: Adult
violence, fear, and ignorance was all she knew of truth
gathered in this sacred house, underneath a steepled roof
her family gather
in fear they do pray
It is a vengeful , jealous , God, they kneel before this day.
violence, fear, and, ignorance, was all she new of love
with golden ring , she was weed , with blessing from above
gathered with her children
to this stern god
her husband was a vengeful, jealous, man , who used a thumb size rod
too much like god of the hebrew , are many of people who follow him
their judgment is so hard their love so grim
gathered in shared misery
they cry mercy
for their soul
and down this wicked path they stagger and beat each other as they go.
Author's Notes: I believe that power does not corrupt as much as corrupt people are drawn to power, like vultures to the dead they gather and greedily fight over it.
I had originally Thought to call this poem the Betrayal of Christ , The words of Christ I find very enlightening , A man who lived without inciting violence or hatred of another his teachings were intended to have led us to brotherhood and forgiveness as we may all have moments of greed or thoughtlessness . His only act of Violence was against those who made themselves rich using the sanctity of the church , and only then he overturned the tables an ran them off .
Today many churches offer to sell us the secrets of Christianity on CD or DVD , wile Speaking some form of hatred against whoever is the popular hatred focus at the moment , drunks , Whores , Thieves , Jews, of homosexuals were always good standbys . Easy is it to feel Hatred and want Righteous judgment and vengeance, So much harder is it to let go of hate and wish instead that these people will change for the better . And as for Homosexual Lifestyle I cant find a passage Where Christ spoke of it at all So where does the modern Church Find Their point of Reference for this Insane Hatred . I can not think of a war , A genocide or a Market melt down that was lead By this horde of Evil Fags . Hitler Was a Christian And it was the blessed Republican party that was in control under every baking scandal in America .
Be wary of any who would harm or Call Judgment of another in the name of God or gods. This poem was not meant to make Christians out as evil but evil men have a way to make weapons out of anything. I could kill with a sword a branch or an angel figurine a druids staff, the shape maters little only the use. Don't let your faith be blind or it will soon be corrupted .
The narrow path was made that way from the many mangled bodies Hate has stack along the along roadside using a Violent rabid interpretation of god's hope. Hebrew faith that gave us King David a greedy, egomaniac , betrayer of men, Mohammed the bloody slayer of women and children Sprang from these same nomad peoples . These Core Religions still murder each other for the same blood stained nameless God, and in his name and call it holy , just and good.
