A thought

Everyone has a religion of their choice

In their religion, they truly rejoice

Some shout louder you hear their voice

Some utter with tense vocal chords - devoice

Their religions cry out for love and peace

All animosity and hatred decrease

All violence and all fighting to hopefully cease

And make peaceful harmony the centrepiece

If this is true then let me say

Why are some religious people not this way?

For being different the price we pay

The God they worship and betray

If cultures offend and cloud your ideals

Be offended my others and see how it feels

Hidden behind a faith and what it reveals

For the victims of crime there are no appeals

Take a step back and contemplate your fate

When you finally arrive at whatever gate

Don’t assume the cleaning of the slate

The burdens of a misguided Hate
