Poetry – Certainty is Crazy

Certainty is Crazy

 

Death and suffering

Is the currency

They deal out

To you and me.

Such certainty

Is crazy.

 

Opher – 17.5.2020

 

 

Behind all the violence and war are men who connive, seek power and wealth, and are willing to use religion, politics and lies to get their way.

Many are religious fanatics who wish to impose their views on others. There is no doubt in their minds – nothing to question.

They are willing to kill, torture and wage war in order to force people to accept their views.

In my view such unquestioning faith, such fanaticism, is crazy. It is responsible for much of the evils that go on around us, for much of the violence, division and nastiness.

Total belief is crazy.

I'd like to hear from you...
