RELIGIOUS ROADMAPS
(7/25/16)


we all
need direction

we need
help
with our
life travels

some
will tell us
that they
have
the answer

that their
means
are actually
an end

they are
well meaning

have the best
of information

the best
of intentions

but they take
their doctrine
too much
to heart

their way
shows us
a journey

a destination

but
their parchment

their rituals

are neither

once we
know the route

the maps
no longer
serve
a purpose

other than
to be handed
to the next
traveler
