"speaking words of wisdom, 'Let it be.'"

Up the Creek Without a Paddle

Write the write of Christian might
and get a fight from left or right. 
Though offensive it may not be
to those who choose to believe,
it causes some, without a faith,
to crudely answer with words of hate.
Now you do your thing and I'll do mine:
I'll not censor your doubts about Jesus and the wine
While you dare to stop the poetry of things Divine.

I like Sid's comment. That's really where things get messed up: intolerance of others' beliefs. I've been exposed to a lot of different belief systems, and considered different things, so I have to be able to have some tolerance for other belief systems, and in many cases, I even have a deep love and fascination with different belief systems!

I think this is what we really need: to get the religions of the world to respect one another, come together and study together. I think a lot of people could learn respect for others' beliefs like this, and we really need that in the world now: there are a lot of people who, like you say in your poem, take offense in other belief systems (yes, I know you are talking about Christianity in your poem, but it can be applied to any belief system).

Overall, nice write, good job!
Hope you're well,

Everyone has beliefs whether it be a creed, a supreme being, or just how they conduct theselves on this earth.
The poison lies in the intollerance of others views.
Good thought provoking write well crafted.
Just my view.
Sid .

Nice sentiments, and very true. I really like the rhyme. Everyone has the right to write about what they believe, or do not believe in without negative judgement from others. Charlie.
