Unbeliever

Actions
speak so much louder
than words
falling from lying lips.
Platitudes mouthed
‘Come save your soul’.
Hesitate not
for the gates of Hell
wide open
for sinners such as myself
for small children
whose only sin was to be  burdened
with adult concerns.
Sit in your castle
built upon the blood of innocents
demanding more…..
more money
more sacrifice
more of everything you declare holy.
Fight against basic truths
demean
degrade
fancy words spewed to others like you.
My lips twist with derision
when I see you
for you have decided that you
and you alone
are the one who gets to call down hellfire
on all who are unlike.
disgusting
degenerate
with money
with women
with sanctimonious piety.
Tis not me that you need to be afraid of
but that god
you use to cow
to manipulate
to abuse
anyone
who is an unbeliever to you.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
