(mis)Guided By Faith

Sing your hymns

Say your prayers

Give thanks and praise

To your God

Ask for blessings

Beg forgiveness

For your sins

Call for peace

An end to hunger

Pray for the homeless

And the sick

Ask your Lord

To have mercy

On our souls

For that is what

You think your faith’s about

 

But the one thing that you’ll never do

Is any of that

You’ll never feed the hungry

Clothe the homeless

Help the poor

Never aid the ones who need it

You’ll never mend what you have broken

Apologise or repent

You’ll give no second thought to anyone

Unless there’s something in it for you

 

Is that really how your faith guides you?
