Fanaticism has no appeal to me

I will not succumb to the extremist beliefs,

The religious fanaticism that talks of God and Satan,

The battle between heaven and hell

Which are borne from man made sacraments,

That divide and create hate among people of different faiths,

I will not succumb to the intolerance of those

Who do not have the intelligence or wisdom to know,

That everybody has a right to believe as they choose

Without the fear of persecution by those who force their views,

Upon everybody else, in a tyrannical, despot display,

Believe in what I do, follow me and obey,

This is their rhetoric and what they say

Believe in my God or one day you’ll pay,

I will not be cowered under their guilt and their sin

When so much money is made by them,

And so much sexual abusing,

And the chastising of people by so many faiths

Who choose to live free lives in different ways,

Your fanaticism and dogma and your extremist beliefs

Are not signs of divinity or glory to me,

But a forms of conditioning designed to control

I won’t abdicate my mind or surrender my soul,

To self imposed leaders of man made religions

My God, my Buddha loves me and respects my decisions,

For they gave me free will to live a good life

And I aim to do this in a way that is right,

And I aim to do this following my own spiritual light.
