The Answer

I question every day 
Does morality exist?  
Is there a contrast
In between what is right 
and what wrong is? 

I am not in a place 
To judge humanity
everyone is free 
To do whatever the fuck they want.

If you want to devote your life to Jesus, 
Go ahead.
If you want to eat your life away, 
Go ahead. 
If you want to get high every day,
Go ahead.

But if there is one thing that is not acceptable,
It is to take another person’s life.

You can believe whatever you desire,
It does not matter what your faith is laid upon.  
Go ahead and tell yourself that you’re superior. 

But do not use the name of a so and so called “God”
To justify your ignorance. 
I understand that this poem
Is not going to change your believes.
And you can trust me when I say, 
That is not what I intend. 

My intention is to live in a nation 
Where there is harmony among its people. 
So, this is a fuck you to ignorance. 
This is a fuck you to bigotry.
Fuck you to every action that is empowered by hate.
Because at the end of the day,
The biggest teaching that Jesus left us, 
Was: “Love thy neighbor, as I have loved you”
And that is the answer to everything.

Felt like I was reading this climactic speech/poem. I like that you have kept up with the times and the goings on and made it an out spoken art piece.
