Your child doesn't care that I'm a different color

But why do you

Babies love who loves them plainly

Adults like to love based on who they see

Yet they can love an imaginary god who they can't see but can't love me

Oh I'm not scared of your Hell believe me

If it did exist you would be right there with me

I would be smiling as the horror gripped your face

Color doesn't matter but you made it take first place

And your baby doesn't care what I look like

Your baby just wants to sleep on my chest and hear my heartbeat

I laugh when they say I should be ashamed of being an atheist

Because they should be ashamed of hating me and praying to a god of nonsense

Oh do you really think that hating me is okay

With the same god you claims loves you everyday

I can't walk inside of your house but you think that one day

This place called Heaven is going to let you in

Oh if there is Satan I'm sure that it would be laughing...

Your baby just wants to be held

My dark skin doesn't matter your baby doesn't care

All your child wants is love and it's a shame

That these grown ass folks can't be the same

Oh but I should believe

In the god of racist beliefs

Ignorant like some saying my color is a curse

Even in your make believe bible that isn't in a verse

So I smile

Knowing that your hate will be exposed to you somehow

Your baby doesn't care because your baby is not proud

Perfect and innocent they don't waste the time

Making fake lines

To pick who they love

They don't act like us and keep their loved covered up

To who we think deserves it

Why can't grown folks do the same

You and your god should be ashamed

No prob lol I wish I could write as well as you do.

I don't think I write well at all. Not to mention that I need to go and take a few classes in grammar as I haven't forgotten what I have learned. Some may even say that what I write is plain, but I hope that people see the emotion in what I have written.

I get goose bumps when I write some of my poetry because I admit some of the things that I have never told anyone and it feels great. I feel better because I don't feel ashamed to express who I am and what I believe whether I am posting here or somewhere else.

I am really getting into posting here and I am looking for more ways to make Think Atheist my main social place. Here we are not alone in what we think and I feel honored to be around other fellow thinkers such as yourself.

Thanks for your compliments and I hope that I write more entries that you approve of.

Well, I think the emotion is what makes it so great. A few grammatical errors here and there are no big deal, though. And, you're very welcome. :)
