I am floundering in a world that’s diverse
But the diversity is a mess
People hate each other even at their best
No one realises that they are the same
No one sees the similarities
It hurts my brain
I know religions and I study them all well
I follow none, on me; they do not cast their spell
But many are enchanted by their promises and their hopes
But I do not follow them; I see it worse than dope
And many do attack me, for my flimsy and secular ways
They think I don’t believe in god and that he creates
But I do, but I won’t name god and I won’t give him a sex
I do not know if they are male or female and I don’t know if our behaviour they even check
Do they care about our ways, whether we are good or if we’re bad?
Do they think there’s a code to life we must follow to be glad?
I don’t know and neither do you, so why do you follow texts?
Texts that are written by other men to control their nations via pretext
Oh I see the spell that you are under
I see it all too clear
But to tell you all, you won’t have it
At me you will snipe and jeer
Yet you will kill for your god and your ways
Though your texts they tell you don’t
You do so anyway because…?
You know not do you? You don’t!
So tell me why you’re so enchanted, when religion causes war?
When your own texts tell you not to and you do so because the law…
Why do you stand for murder when your beliefs are threatened so?
Why do you argue with your brother because he is different? Lo…
Can’t you see the mess you’re in? Can’t you see the spell?
Can’t you see it’s not just you, but other beliefs as well?
It is better not to label oneself, for the good of all mankind
It is better to live together in peace, be good and happy and kind
Keep away from the toxic faiths that turn you from other men
Turn away from those paths and then…
You will see such happy times, of peace and love and compassion
You will know then what heaven is, if you forget your violent passions
You cannot be a good spirit, if your heart is full of hate
You need to think another way, do not be afraid to cross that gate
I think you will see it is a blessed life, when you turn your hate into love
I think this is what you need to do to follow the path of the dove

I am floundering in a world that’s diverse
Willows lining the rivers, poplar lining the fields
A dream of British landscapes
A joy that overfills
Long and winding roads
And undulating fields and hills
Brings peace to mankind
And many summer thrills
When evening comes to settle
See the sunset in the sky
Dreaming of British landscapes
The beauty makes us sigh
One cloak to cover the world in night time, one solitary power
That creates all creatures, every plant and every flower
Every wish is his command, every thought and prayer
He loves all his creations, with his heart so full of care
Should we question his existence?
Do we notice his answers?
Can we see around us, the little things that dance in the basking rays of light?
Or are our minds clouded by the cloak of the night?
Some people will say it’s so, to those who don’t believe
But I have felt ignored like a forgotten flowers seed
I don’t know if he exists, his benevolence to me unknown
Sometimes I sit back and think religion I’ve outgrown
I have felt forsaken, by this elusive God
I have never known him; to me he’s just a sod
I feel he’s egotistical gaining praises every day
Sitting smugly on his throne whilst we just fade away
I don’t feel his warmth and love, yet begged for it often
All i needed to reign me in was a little bit of action
A little help here and there to get me away from abuse
But instead I grew to learn that his a god of no use
I’m sorry to offend you, those who do believe
But I have been neglected and that is why I grieve
I cannot show respect for a god who doesn’t care
I can only hate religion because in my life he wasn’t there
So is it my fault if it’s true, that I will go to Hell?
For since I was born I’ve felt from him dispelled.
Oh how preciously you hold him
High in great esteem
Whilst I sit and wait
To wake from this horrid dream
That ironically rhymes with strife
And that’s my existence too
Filled with violence that’s my review
I cannot surrender to more abuse
So I leave god be
And if he is truly kind
He’ll remember me and see
That when judgment day comes around
I will not go to hell
Because I don’t deserve it
Just release me from his care
And allow me to say farewell
As I become a free spirit
And leave the nightmare
I will wonder the heavens, searching for some love
Hoping to find protection and the peace loving dove
Though I’m not sure where it’ll be
And independence I will want
Away from godly and demonic taunts
Yes, lonely I will be, in the endless universal sea
But I will cope as I’ve always known it
Yes, I will not submit
No longer do I wait
I accept my fate
I am dark and I am light, we are all a mixture of these extremes
We are evil and we are good, is it worth denying this?
No one is perfect, how true is that?
One man’s poison is another man’s fat
We can’t all be the same
Trying to be, will drive us insane
What do you deem good and evil?
Does everyone agree?
I think you’ll find if you asked around only a third would see what you see
Maybe more, maybe less, maybe the same
But as I said before, striving for perfection will drive us insane
Do you agree with gay marriage? How about the man down the road?
Do you agree there’s a tortuous hell, burning up bad souls?
Do you agree in polygamy or are you monogamously straying?
Do you beat the bad dog that is always baying?
There are many questions I want to ask, there’s so many different answers
Some of us want to be rich or ballerina dancers
As you can see, not all of us
Yet our perceptions we demand on others
Do we have that right to individually smother another into our way of thinking?
I think to do that would involve a lot of stinking!
Live in peace with your fellow man
Follow your own path
But don’t forget to allow him too, in his joys let him bath
No one knows what perfection is, until they’ve allowed all things, to live in harmony being themselves and without your tongues stings
With this poem I had hoped that it would give out a message to all people to allow individuality in others no matter whether you agree with it or not. No one can understand what is truly good or truly bad, no one can know what perfection is, because we all have our own idea of perfect.
If we don’t like something, or someone, or a situation another person is in, is it really our concern? If they are happy then leave them alone. I know so many people who either bully or attack people they disagree with, you want peace on earth? Be the peace on earth!
