I am not Religious

 This morning, another murder in the name of religion. So many senseless deaths...

I am not religious
But you are

I am not strong of faith
But you are

So how is it
That I do not judge but you do

How is it
That I try not to hurt but you do

How is it
That our religion means peace
Our greeting; "May Peace be upon you!"

Yet you dance on our streets
Brandishing Our religion as Your Weapon

But
This is not religion
Not yours or mine

So let's start anew
You and I
As humans
Without malice or judgement
Or vengeance

Let's claim that Peace
Let's make it ours

Peace is religion
Religion should be Peace.
