CHRISTIANS
(7/5/16)


I like
them

I really
do

but they seem
overly worried
with my worldly
people

places

things

my worldly
goals

my mortal
soul

as if God
is concerned
with what
I do here

I tell them
that I seek
to remove
all that lies
between me
and my creator

nothing
more

they shake
their heads

say
that they hope
to see me
in church

I don't
tell them
that their religious
beliefs
are my
biggest obstacle

but I do
hope
that their
pews

their collection
plates

are full
