Wednesday Is Poetry Day

This skeptical piece is by Iraqi poetess, Amal al-Jubouri; written in 2002.

Veil Of Religions

If you are One
and your teachings are One
why did you inscribe our infancy in the Torah
and adorn our youth in the Gospels
only to erase all that in your final Book?
Why did you draw those of us who acknowledge your oneness into disagreement?
Why did you multiply in us, when you are the one and only One?

URL is the website address of your blog, if you have one. for instance, my url is http://annika.mu.nu/

Shit, that's not bad, but I find it better not to question, but to seek understanding. Clearly, our existance is to bring Him pleasure and pain, and that is the substance of existance.

But it's free verse Casca?! (At least it is in translation.)
