When religion reaches
  The end of the road,
Where else is there to go?
When its books are
Ingrained in the mind,
Where else is there to go?
When beliefs are
Still in contention,
Where else is there to go?
When proof is
The manifestation of hearsay,
Where else is there to go?
When peace is still
Just a word,
Where else is there to go?
When peace fails
To reach the heart,
Where else is there to go?
When harmony is still
Broken into many pieces,
Where else is there to go?
When love whispers
Into deaf ears,
Where else is there to go?
Religion aspired
Is religion gained.
Love aspired
Is love gained.
 
Until religion realizes that
It isn’t the end,
It will always be in need
Of love’s consecration
To deem it creditable.

Religion is not the answer. Love is

Religions are always at odds with the others. The only thing lacking in love is the fulfillment of it.

Thank you Maria. Religions make love too complicated. Love is love, just as simple a that. There is no right and wrong love.

Amen! Love simply manifests in all situations, difficult or otherwise,
a common thread we can all share religion regardless. Religion comes home and should come home to where love resides. Until then we continue to suffer the conflicts the different faiths present.
All we need, love. Thank you Robert. Fave this one.
