Fear of death
Wonder and awe
Left us wondering
What it was for.
We could concur.
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
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.
May all the misogynistic regimes perish!!
