I love God
But Religion said that I wasn’t loving Him right
Every night, instructions say I should bruise fallen knees
With glued palms to set my demons free
Because Religion said, believing is slavery instead of a relationship
I picked up a bible with such beautiful meaning inside
But the outside held grimy fingerprints
Our proof of contamination
Where interpretations led to more hatred and war
I believe that anyone can talk to God
But Religion said I need a VIP pass
Ask of God through men in boxes
Because He’ll only listen if the soul confesses
Through someone more righteous than I
I believe God is my father
But Religion said that He stays angry with me
Old testament sentiments since
I am always an unworthy heathen grieving for His mercy
That Religion says I don’t even deserve
And it said that He only listens when He wants to
But my heart expects Him to do father-like things
Such as loving me unconditionally, taking care of me, and forgiving me
Wrapped in His arms so intimately until I master His heartbeat
I know that God loves me
But Religion said if I make him mad, He definitely smite me
Curse me with diseases because I didn’t pray as much as America needed
Or intentionally send me through storms
So a lesson can be born and be bled through miscarriages of faith
I hate that God must be an angry, vengeful creature
At least that’s what Religion portrays as our leader
I’ve listened to speakers testify
That the God we serve puts pain on those who deserve it
But I wouldn’t expect a father on Earth to have a child just to hurt it
This seek of salvation is made brutal
When it’s an affection that’s so much more personal than that
I know that I am imperfect
But Religion said I have to do things perfectly
Or my Father will hate me
I sit with these hypocrites who have turned
A Godly relationship into man-made politics
Claiming universal knowledge, instead of sticking to basics
Teaching me the more that I pray, the more likely He’ll hear it
I don’t only have to believe in God’s love but I also have to fear it
Tainting His love, repainting His son’s blood to be invisible
As if that incredible price was never even paid
But Religion enslaves me to believe that sacrifice wasn’t enough
Because loving God is supposed to be mechanical
And while the angels protect me, so-called Christians disrespect me
As they say we face Katrinas for not doing things right
And we taste 9/11s only for the evil in our life
But when I was born into a world of sin
I cried of joy, knowing God is no contradiction
As Religion condemns us for every human condition
I worship a God of mercy, above all ridiculous opinions
We try to make loving Him difficult
When loving Him is so easy
He pleases me everyday with life, love and poetry
Waiting on me to receive that He’s already done it all for me
Despite what Religion said
I think I’ll go with my heart that God made instead
For this is based on our intimate relationship
Never a product of ownership and punishment
Religion said I should fear him
But every time He says, Brandon I love you
I don’t jump, quiver, or bow down in shame
I confidently say, I love you too

There are many things that children should do for their father, they should respect him, listen, and obey, but regardless of whether they do these things or not, a father's love is unconditional, God's love is unconditional. Your words emitted such purity of love, your final lines summed it up so well.

Despite what Religion said
I think I’ll go with my heart that God made instead
For this is based on our intimate relationship
Never a product of ownership and punishment
Religion said I should fear him
But every time He says, Brandon I love you
I don’t jump, quiver, or bow down in shame
I confidently say, I love you too

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
