Religion has caused problems with people
I am not bashing religion,
Or saying anything bad about it,
Yet, it has caused people problems,
Over the years,
There have been wars over it,
And many tensions,
Atheists don't fight about such things,
Such things don't matter to them,
Religion is a choice,
It should remain that way,
No one should be forced to believe in God,
People need to focus on other things,
How about being good?
Spreading goodness to others,
We have too many religious people,
Anyone can be religious,
Not everyone can be good,
Being good is seen as being weak,
By too many people,
Think about what I have said in this poem,
Try to be good,
People can see good things,
They can't see gods or angels,
And again, as I have said before, carpe diem.
