WE ALL LOVE GOD. YET...


We all love God
As is evident
In our packed churches
On Sundays
And all our masjid
From Fajr to Isha
Five times every day.

Yet..
We cheat everything
And everyone!
Steal from the system
Lie to save our arses
Enrich ourselves
By hurting others
Spread so much hate
To those different from us
Kill, maim and destroy

Color me purple
But...
Isn't that goal of the exiled one?
Isn't that what makes him evil?

How can we explain
The vast chasm
Between One we say
Is the Epitome of holiness
And our definitely UNHOLY behavior
In almost all spheres
Of our lives?

Why are we then
Wasting our time
Doing all that 'worship'
When we cannot
Reflect the light
We spend so much time
Facing?

In the words of Lauryn Hill
'Check your motives and thoughts.'
We need to check our motives and thoughts.
