I wrote this poem on 1-5-04. I was still a "believer" in the Christian "God" at that time.


I am evil
No good to people
Sin and awe
Worthless and flawed
This bible is now cold
No love and no hold
There is love in the sky
Impersonal to you and I
I can't keep these standards
I can't pray to you from a far
People are here
My feelings are near
Tears and fears
Sell out like beers
But you are away
I have to do exactly as you say
When I fail you throw me away
Refuse to hear me if I stray
I messed up so you blast away
I was insane to think I was yours
To think God loved me
Look at me, seem me, hear me, I'm ugly
I'm faulty, wrong, in need
My love, is it cold
Would you dare to fix it
Or will you give up and watch me burn?

No doubt religions 'prey' on people with low self esteem. Once one becomes self reliant through study and experience, he or she will have no need for religion.

Exactly. I know that first hand.
