    Something i conjured a couple of days ago tell me how u feel....
    Reli- gone from Religion

    My mother asked me once
    “Are u gon- Reli on Religion?”
    With God inside I couldn’t lie
    “Momma Im Reli- Gone from Religion”

    My words cut through her pleasant scripture pages
    Only to reveal her sullen rage
    “Momma Please let me explain my tension”
    ….division in essence is religion

    My soul was once lost on a dreary road
    I stepped up in a church… they didn’t match my tone
    So I continued on my endeavor to find my home

    The next stop was a temple where the people were black
    My faith maid a rear exit cause they took the cross and
    Stabbed me in my back

    So on I went to a glorious tabernacle
    The walls were made of gold
    The congregation’s garments were nothing short of spec tac cle
    With pockets linty and my stomach past empty

    I hollered “LORD DELIVER ME A LENDER”
    An fine christian usher tapped me on the shoulder
    And whispered “god can hear u better with legal tender

    ” With God inside I couldn’t lie
    “Momma Im Reli- Gone from Religion”

    I truly feel you on this
    it has long been my sentiment
    that religion is not only devisive
    but the shackle by which we remain enslaved...

    great piece...loved it

    Some houses of God can make you feel like you've stepped into the devil's workshop. Good thing that God lives within. I'm really diggin the way you brought this.
