You Said These are True




Your story of the divinity is spellbinding

Your reflection of the mysticism is unrivaled

The young and the old, the blacks and the whites

Are obeisance before you


Some say you could even

perform magic and divine revelations

I stand amongst the crowds,

Listening intently to you


You said that the believers are sinless

and that the non-believers are sinners;

That paradise is only for those who live

with The Holy Book guiding their path

And that hell is for those who deviate from the path

You said these are true


But the course of the life

and the intangibility of the invisible lives

both have proven otherwise


Too many of the so-called ‘believers’ committed wrongdoings

Even harm other living beings

And too many of the ‘non-believers’ are innocent

as they stand at the forefront to defend the powerless


You’d better think twice of the truth of your claims

I have eyes to see, ears to hear, skin to touch,

And reason to prove it myself

I don’t think God is happy with your claims


So why are you still wearing the garment of pretension?

  3. “YOU SAID THESE ARE TRUE” makes a valid point; no one holds the market on truth, as truth is in the eyes of the beholder; well written poem…

  4. At first, I thought this was going to be an attack on Christianity, but as I kept reading, I realized that was not the case at all. I loved the last line about wearing the ‘garment of pretension’. So true, I don’t think God is happy.

    I scrolled back up to the artwork after I read your poem, and it is indeed the perfect choice for this piece…a wolf in sheep’s clothing, for sure.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog…that is how I found yours.

  9. Nice subject Zein….They’ve given the Lord an identity, a language & worst of all a religion & they blindfolded us to follow; well I refused being a follower for a created God & I think Dalai Lama described exactly my religion: “This is my simple religion, there’s no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy…Our own brain; our own heart is our temple & the philosophy is kindness”

  10. Religious leaders always used religions, as a tool for mantain their power and control over faithful and innocent people who ignores the reality about their liar leaders who distort every word on their holy books. And that happens since the first religion was born, even nowadays, where any kind of information is available to everyone and can enlight every doubt about any question.

    I feel sad about those people who attacked, killed or died for those false faith and negative doctrines that someone taught them distorting any nice value from their religion into a convenient lies showed as a facts. They’re innocent because they have been deceived.

    Nice poem, makes you think about…

    • Hello, Aitor, my lovely friend! 🙂

      Thank you for leaving your beautiful footprints down here. I really appreciate your comment. Yes, you are totally right. Some of the religious leaders are still great people who lead other people out of misery, but most of them are pure evils. Religious dogmas have been abused to a great extent for the power and self-interest of this second group of leaders.

      I am glad you find the poem is thought-provoking. I hope you return for other enjoyable visits, my lovely friend! 🙂
