A Brief History of Religion

Spread the love

A Brief History of ReligionAnthropomorphised deities take form in human mind,

Where justice love and lore entwined,

But as time pasted divine transformed power,

The force to rule men turned truth sour,

And religion was born.


Ruling classes of men defined who and what was friend,

Hope, trust and unity no-one saw their end,

Concepts became ideals as words became weapons,

Seekers of true wisdom became outlaws and felons,

And fear was born.


Hooded and robed chatter simple factuality mixed with hypnotic control,

Become the Supplicant and offer your gift to save your immortal soul,

Raise up the woman grant her goddess and barer of gods equal to men,

Then stripe her, beat and burn and teach her without males she cannot fend,

And subjection was born,


But men are men we have to say, they all think they know the right way,

They will scream and rant till they have their say,

With no way to win they run and grab a power play,

So with voices charged they claim the deity is friend and the true full guide,

Now faith was born to divide


Now books and scriptures came very fast,

Proof a legacy a story to last,

But as with men they pervert and create a new tree limb to bend,

Some branches will bend and break and evil spawn will replaced,

The birth of power and politics will defend,


Our first breath of life we know the true way,

Do what correct not what’s written or spoken words may say,

Be kind and blind to looks, give don’t take,

Come on people you are wise see past what’s fake,

Hope is reborn
