current church receives much opposition
struggle is letting go of the demons
reevaluate the modern christian
religion’s decorative facade lies
within ignorance of humanity
shut doors block out the everlasting cries
reevaluate christianity
yet, the united states lives in god’s name
the twenty-first century is a tale
of inherited beliefs causing shame
time is of the essence to remove veils
continue to move with the mainstream dance
defend your beliefs while you have the chance

My attempt at a Shakespearean sonnet. The lack of capitalization and punctuation is purposeful.

I like the sonnet format, which is saying something because not many people can pull it off. The meaning is great.

I honestly don't know what to say XD Not my type of poetry, but it's not my poetry lol good job, and yes, we SHOULD defend what little beliefs we do sustain, for when they're gone then only madness may rule over the masses. The justice has spoken
