On Religion



There can be many paths
That lead to the ultimate destination
Of everlasting peace and bliss.

The lesson to be taught, however,
Has been overlooked by
A plague of arrogance and greed.

True peace comes with acceptance
And the ability to embrace
The glories of nature that surround us all.

Love thy neighbor,
Renounce worldly possessions,
The colored looking glass of hope and faith

Can be viewed from many angles.
No one creed prevails over another;
There is only faith.
