How Religion Screws it Up

We humans take
God’s teaching and love
And make a ceremony
Make a ritual, make up rules
We take the love out
And put in shame
When the God we follow
Washed all the shame away
We are guilt free,
But the human part of me
Forgets and makes up rules
We all do it, and it’s wrong
It’s not about rules
It’s about love
Don’t let love get lost
In the tradition
In the ritual
None of that matters
We made it up
It’s all about
God’s great, overwhelming love
