Love is Patient
Love is Kind
But apparently loves not blind
Stand on your stage
As we sit in the pew
Tell us dear Pastor,
What your Jesus would do.
Don’t you see the despair
That’s not under your steeples?
Or does your love only reach to privileged, white people?
You are the one that you’ve warned us about.
You are the wolf in sheep’s skin,
I won’t be apart of hate winning again.
I must walk away
From your blasphemous lies
Tell me oh father,
why do you ignore the pain in other’s eyes?
I’ll no longer let your words
Poison my veins
You’re no better than Cain.
Sending prayers overseas,
your poor neighbors well wishes.
I want my words to be actions
So call me a heretic, while I join the “bitches”
Although you taught me I’m weak
I’ve learned my strength lies within.
So while you preach your darkness,
I’ll fight to let love and light win.
Farewell to the church created
I long for the day you let love in
