The Illusion of Faith
Is what binds us all-
through Society’s rise
And Society’s fall
Throughout man’s mistakes
Triumphs and compromise
Through his happiness
And when his thoughts oxidize
When man has had thoughts of Death
Life and Beyond
When Man has taken too long to respond.
When the Bunkers of a Man’s Solitude are being bombed
Look inside yourself- not others
Aren’t we all Sisters and Brothers?

The interpretations of the weak and ill minded
Have caused some Temples to become blinded.
Throughout endless fascism, hypocrisy, and negligence
Man has surrounded his true Intentions in a near unbreakable Fence.
The Fence of Fear
The Fence of Cowardice
The Fence of Rage
Without it, they are powerless

When Society has been left in Patches
The wicked Soul turns to the Opium of the Masses.

The author's comments:
There is still a lot of religious prejudice around the world and these philosophies have been reshaped for the benefit of the few.
This poem is a call to open a dialog between all citizens in the world on human tolerance.
