Medieval Morality

Medieval Morality

Fear of death

                Wonder and awe

Left us wondering

                What it was for.

We sought

                An answer

Around which

                We could concur.

We invented

                Gods and faith

Rules and religion

                To make us feel safe.

Now we’re prisoners

                Inside our concoction

Raging and dividing

                In full execution.

Victims of medieval

                Morality

Preventing us exploring

                What might be.

Opher – 25.6.2022

Back in the dark depths of history we invented religions. Driven by a desire to understand we sought explanations.

Over time they became rigid dogma that chained us and prevented us accepting the new.

There had to be no change or evolution.

The dogma is a prison of our own making.

Periodically the zealots and fanatics want to drag us back to the Dark Ages.

Take away women’s rights, put them in robes, hidden behind veils. Lock them away.

Misogynistic religions blame women for the faults of men. They must be made to suffer.

I'd like to hear from you...
