What is Religion?

What is Religion?

That seems to be the world's biggest question

It's like all beliefs come with people and violence 

And who don't know it or appreciate it get silenced

I thought the purpose of religion was to give people something to believe in

Guess I was wrong 

Because the bombings, massacres, and killings didn't take very long

What is Religion?

People say as their loved ones are being taking away

What happened to the idea that any beliefs had a place?

Cause it seems like it disappeared without a trace

Why does it matter that people have different beliefs?

We all at the end of the day want peace and harmony 

And that's not a bad thing  

Because religion isn't something that tears people apart

It's something that holds people together 

Especially when they need it the most

I agree with your views that religion is something that holds people together. This topic has also been on my mind from time to time and it feels nice that someone is expressing them. Overall, it is a very authentic poem.
