Oh! That the blind may see
The very essence of Humanity
And stop being ruled by insanity
Fighting for a god like he truly sends?
Isn’t a god supposed to be sufficient in himself?
To fight for himself?
If he can’t, what difference does he make from man—You and I, why esteem him.
Maybe we are too soaked in naivety
Or just so veiled to see
How that a true God regards Humanity.
We—a perfect expression of his creativity
Just if we could see clearer
Maybe, we will spare ourselves the extremism and for once value brotherhood
Loving over difference.
Hope our heart be receptive
We won’t always agree to the same thing
Yes, Faith or Beliefs
Values or Principles we hold we differ
An undeniable fact remains still,
We all are Humanity in all of our diversities
And so embracing our diversities
Respecting our differences
If there is anything to be extreme about or a way to show allegiance to the god we claim to serve
It is the love towards our brother
For if we extremely love the god we claim to serve
We will love his creature.
Shackles, chains for religious sake
More and more we put to stake.
No! These woes must stop!
We’ve got to take back our sanity from religion.
And so, in the spirit of Humanity
In the voice of those who by these woes have gone to the grave beyond
I stand tall
With my voice raised
I say No! To religious extremism, fanatism and sadism.
Love above all.
Towards one another
Regardless of tradition or tribe
Religion or even race.

Ever taken a closer look at yourself and the struggles you have overcome and the times God had taught you some hard lessons, and you went straight down on your knees and say thank you Jesus for all that you’ve given and all you’ve taken.
Be grateful to God for all you got and all you lost. Remember! His thoughts towards you are of good and not of evil to give you an expected end, this expected end may not come through the signs and the process that you have always imagined. Most times, it won’t obey the laws of this world but when God launches you into your expected end, it won’t only shock you but you will be grateful for all the times God took you through pain, through the disappointments and through the tunnels.
Sometimes God will back off and let life shape you so that when he steps in, you will appreciate him and value his presence in your storm.
No matter what you’re going through or what is going through you, don’t forget to have a conversation with God today, most importantly remember to say thank you Jesus today for all you’ve done in my life, for all that you will do today, tomorrow and in the future.
