It's ok

Beloved,

it’s ok to question a book

written thousands of years ago

by men who wanted control.

It’s ok to ponder a different

afterlife than the one that

was fed to us through a feeding tube

when we were young.

It’s ok to think that the god

you were told to believe in

might have different faces.

It’s ok to wander away

from our tightly tethered

upbringing and proclaim

independence through our

own unique thoughts.

Do not let fear of hellfire

And brimstone keep you from

Becoming enlightened

Beloved,

It’s ok,

It’s ok,

It’s ok.
