Poems - The Meaning of Life
Just as religious people have their freedom to their beliefs
of which I do not look down my nose at them;
they should not sport airs of contempt for the disbelief of others
that may still be searching.
If I believe that:
We heard the sermons priests will preach,
The wonderland they show.
We trust the stuff that teachers teach,
But do we truly know?
There is no mighty master plan,
No underworld to understand.
There's only what you will and can.
The meaning of life is to live.
They still have the right to save me as their religion commands,
then what I find more than often is condemnation for beliefs to the point
of condemning one to hell before even death and then they don't want to be judged.
(The meaning of life is to live and let live.)
Just a thought. BWP... James...
Great to read a poem with an interesting format that works so well. Looking forward to read more of your poetry.
