Holy Wars

Holy Wars

There is nothing holy about hating.
There is nothing holy about murdering.
There is nothing holy about war.
Nothing holy about feeling superior
to the point of dehumanization and gore.
Connect to your heart and remember what it’s for.

Holy war is an oxymoron
perpetuated by morons
whose minds have grown so narrow
that their judgment is like Pharaoh.
While people yearn to live free,
they are unable to truly see
that we are all equal variations of humanity.

Having a different spiritual path is not a sin.
Loving another human being is not a sin.
Peace and love is how holiness begins.

Love will always win.

Love will always win.
