Here’s the church
Here’s the steeple
Open the doors…..
Ah children’s rhymes, so simple back in the day and yet speak so many truths now.
Taught to believe when we were young, believe in fairy tales, in knights in shining armor, in wrongs being righted, in the truth.
Then we grow up, and little by little those beliefs are slowly torn away.
Torn away by false faces, fake smiles, and small minds.
Having the honor of being taught by some great leaders in life, only to see idiots replace them.
Being part of some great movements only to see them torn down by pride or self involvement.
Seeing great people go forward only to have them sucked up by bigotry and lies.
Having faith in a cause, belief in a project, total everything in a group…
Only to see it screwed up by humans. Humans using these things to further themselves and not the cause,
humans more bigoted then the others they are fighting, hypocritical humans leading a cause for supposed good.
Some may call this a mid-life crisis, others may call this a coming to a realization, there are many more names for what this is….
It is called realizing the wrong people are put on pedestals, and the worshiping is now over.
There are few humans to have faith in and none of those speak out loud, use a microphone or an altar. None of them use a grandstand or video.
None of them use fancy buildings or finances.
Open the doors and see all the people,
Close the doors, done for the day
Open the doors they’ve all gone away.
You don’t need a steeple and people to believe..
