Whispers in the Dark
Shadows flirt with the Sun,
Dancing rhythmicly with the Wind
As she moans a haunting melody
That rattles through winter barren trees,
Sibilating mocking tones
With honeyed colloquy
That simply drip toxicity
Into our hearts and minds.
Losing ourselves within
the deepening pestilential
flood of emotions,
we become lucidly mesmerized
with the brilliant crimson flow
directing our thought pattern
with putrid paltry beliefs
of one God's illegitimate ascendancy
over the other religions,
culitvating us to listen to
the whispers in the dark.
Author's Notes:
I don't know, it just seems pointless to me that everyone fights wars about their God being "better" than all the others, when, in my opinion, they are all the same God. we just call them different names and worship them in different manners. this poem is about the bloodshed in the name of religion, and just so we are clear    NO   OFFENCE   INTENDED   TO  ANYONE'S   PERSONAL   BELIEFS!!!!!!!!!!

I once had a friend who kept looking at his hands.  Back and forth, forth and back.  After four hours he turned to my sister and said, "you know, my left hand is definately uglier than my right."  I agree with you .... God is God and why we can't let someone else worship the way they choose is beyond me.  Fighting about which way is correct is about as bright as my friend.    By the way, my friend has his Phd in Neuro physics.

There is an ancient Eastern saying that has become one of my pets:  'There are many roads to the Temple...'  I fully agree with you:  God is God is God.  To fight (and murder) over 'whose' God is 'better' is more than unGodly and absurd.  In fact, i don't believe that's what they're fighting over.  I think they use the religious and political and geographical and cultural things as excuses.  I think they fight because they want to fight.  Murder because they want to murder -- and that simple truth belies their claims that their sanctioned battles are over 'things.' Anyhow.  They won't stop.  They never have.  They want to fight.  Cool poem.  Thanks for publishing it here. --David

As you say we should listen to ourselves and not get bogged down by dogma -- thought provoking piece -- excellent and thank you
