this is not a religion.

Every breath
unnecessary,
for want
she crumbles to a heap,
useless frame
that holds together

I would not pray
not to the god of whom you speak,
for each word
is mockery of my beliefs

I am…
I am nothing

Spirit
in
useless bag of bones,

This is wrong
I
I don't want this

I have to spend my life
to follow another

next year,
there will be no tree,
so no needles shed

and yours that never dropped a leaf

Perhaps because it was plastic,
perhaps because you were blessed

you see?
I tell her not
that these words are untrue-
that I am something
in their eyes,

But she needs degrade
my faith
when I never questioned
hers

but to you
I am nothing
nothing…

These words sting,
they eat away my flesh..

"who do you trust more?"
I trust...
(let me think about that for a second)

I do believe...
in something

fine,
I sin
because

I don't care how I got here
just that I am here

Liz, you are a deep thinker of many layers. I love this foray into your mind and heart.
I'm glad you are here too, and it matters not why or how you got here!
You ARE your own religion.

So much to say about this one--but, I'll just smile and say thank you.



Thank you.

yeah...you're welcome.

my relatives think that me and my sister are evil because we are anti-religious.

sometimes we do stuff just to be the rebels becasue all of our cousins are those perfect types (lol...they are changing slowly but surely) and I know you'd lava this raphael. you just would
