SCIENCE AND SPIRIT

IF ANYONE OF FAITH IS EASILY OFFENDED THEN I POLITELY SUGGEST THIS IS NOT A POEM FOR THEM . I AM NOT TRYING TO BE ANTAGONISTIC OR CONTROVERSIAL, I’ME JUST EXPRESSING MY THOUGHTS IN VERSE JUST LIKE MY OTHER  POEMS.

 

SCIENCE AND SPIRIT

It puzzles me and makes me wonder,

how faith can tear our World asunder.

That people justify their hate and violence

with invisible Gods who exist in silence.

They say it’s real if you carefully look

and that it’s true cos’ it’s in their book.

These ancient Tomes are hardly proof

yet those of faith become quite aloof

and look on others with wearied pity

hoping to go to their Gods City.

Some say for their God they’ll die,

but really to themselves they lie.

They lack any sense of their worth,

so would rather rest beneath the earth.

Religion identifies you with a group,

you are a member of a certain troupe.

In this for some comfort can be found,

but to rules and customs they are bound.

Others I feel are just spiritually lazy,

it matters not that it may sound crazy.

So long as they don’t in depth have to think,

and they’re told what to say,to eat and to drink.

There are many I’m sure are not ‘all there’,

which one they’re in they really don’t care.

It’s probably good that they have a God,

to guide them through life with a gentle nod.

For me you have to follow your own script

to decide if anything lies beyond the crypt.

Free yourself from all dogma and fable,

pull up a chair to the Seeker’s table.

Imagination and logic are what you need,

to plant with care the special seed,

that will help you unravel all the unknown

and reap the harvest of what’s been sown.

So on religion do not place any reliance,

for solving the mysteries of nature and science.
