We all go to our churches on the Sabbath day
Yet we sin on every other day.
We hide from the Holy Ghost
Cause we know he can kill,
We fear him the most.

We say sorry, forgive me,
Yet we don't understand what that means.
We shed one another's blood.
We make the floods
Which teach our children wrong.

We all have the power to create.
As well as to destroy what we make.
Instead of feeding our kids, we feed our emotions.
They reflect on the death showers that fall from above
I really did think it was about love.
We are destined to kill ourselves, why?

We are all full of sins
We call ourselves saints
The priests think they get a free ticket
While we have to work for it.

We were screwed from the start,
But we can change that.
We just have to open up, listen, learn and teach
And maybe we can reach everything that we believe.

Now I loved the first and second line, you wrote;
We all go to our churches on the sabbath day
Yet we sin on every other day

So true, Loved it. Had a tingling feeling, only you would know what I mean

who can explain it?
i like the topic you picked out for the poem, and i must agree with jeannie45 that that quote was what got me. though there were some parts thats didnt flow as well as others, if looked over-the poem had true depth. who can truly explain the human ation?! i bet we never will find an answer to that...nice poem

I know why
I think I know why we do what we must be the monkey in all of us!

Fairly odd
It was a fairly odd poem. Not bad at all, though. I guess this one just wasn't for me. I really enjoyed some of the others...Black Persephone. This one was just a little off beat. You seem a little negative...regarding everything. Anyway, it was really good.
