Chains

Can you express emotion?
Can you express pain?
Can your feelings show themselves,
Without Religion’s chains?

Can you feel compassion?
Can you feel love?
Put your ideals to one side,
And help those who have lost.

The loss that they are feeling,
And the hurt that’s still to come,
Is dulled by time’s long passing,
That time is still to come.

The memories will linger on
Time’s passing may not heal.
All we can do is hold them tight
Provide comfort that is real.

The light is on, the welcome wide,
For the many who have lost.
Forgiveness stands and holds the door
For those who paid the cost.

For if we turn and face away,
From those that caused us pain,
Fear and hate will rise above,
And strike us down again.

Do you feel emotion?
Do you feel the pain?
Do your feelings show themselves,
Without Religion’s chains?
