My life - My rules we write poems #20 exceptions

I don’t believe in organized religion
(It slices me into pieces)
(I’m so tired of its drivel)
I make no excuses for my beliefs
(I believe in me and family)
(It makes you wish you had a home)
I expect you to follow your beliefs
(Feel free to speak your mind)
(You can’t when your tongue’s tied in knots)
While I am on a path I have chosen
(I’m content with myself)
(Body, mind and spirit)
I make no exceptions to this rule

  1. In regards to religion, everyone has to follow her own path. I like "I make no excuses for my beliefs." Nor should you. Or anyone.

  2. Whatever we do, if our inner does not question, we have the right to go ahead with it. That is what I believe and see it your poem too..

  3. Another vexed question; yes, we should all be free to follow our own path.

  4. I believe we all pray to the same God no matter what our religion. I love freedom of body, mind and spirit too.

  5. I really like this Pamela, especially "I make no excuses for my beliefs". I am of a similar belief, don't try to sell me yours, and I won't try to make you believe something you don't want to. To each his/her own is a very good rule.

  6. Mary, I was a bit hesitant about putting this out here, but I have my own belief system and do not enforce it on others. Which is complex living in a very Catholic country.
    Thanks.

  9. I am in agreement on point 1. And I will gladly let others do as they will UNTIL they choose to deny me my beliefs and others the right to theirs. Then, obviously, ONLY I AM RIGHT!

    Thanks!

  13. Wouldn't it be peaceful if everyone allowed others to follow their own set of beliefs? Well said.

  17. I like this no nonsense tone in your poem Pamela. yes, religion is a personal affair, no prescriptions are required.

  18. "I make no excuses for my beliefs" is my favorite line in this poem. This reads either like a dialogue (although I'm not sure if it's inner or externally with someone else -- which kind of makes it interesting). I like this.
