Treasure Island

Vishal Sharma

(10th july 1996/Samastipur (Bihar) / India)

Religion, why?


the ultimate survivors on this green garden, to my God
they who survive tend to conquer this whole patch
vast green lush spreading here and here, who has provided this?
to my God, to my religion, I am asking again against them
what is religion? all are same, every man is equal
all are created by the unbiased hands of this powerful soul
but, we the humans, differentiated the humans-causing disparities
riots are the result of the difference between the mortal piece
humans are killing themselves-which religion allows this?
religion-a word that makes a human only two things-
helpless or a terrorist.

    Man is created equal! But we divide ourselves into different sects in the name of ideologies and religion. Religion should be a connecting force between man and man and a way to God. Your young mind has such weighty thoughts. This poem is remarkable for your age! ! (Report) Reply

    Wisdom beyond your years, a brilliant understanding of human nature, we ourselves create differences that causes so much harm in the name of religion! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
