I’m part of a cult
So is everyone I know
They have different names

Judaism, Islam, Christianity ,etc.
They teach different things
But they’re interchangeable
They tell you what to do
When, where, and with who
They fight each other and themselves
Saying they have family values
When all they value
Is the 10 percent
You give at the pulpit
I’m part of a cult
And so is everyone I know
Maybe one day we’ll escape

I don't really like this one. It not necessarily because of the message, which I find kinda of negetative, it because it lacks a rythmn. Fr a poem to be a must have some sor of rythmn and this poem doesn't really have one. I think you should start from square one and make the poem again, this time aliterating more and have a better structure. It over all a good idea for a poem,it just doesn't flow right, Keep writing,
