FAITH

FAITH


Tales of doctrines without history,
drenched in blood, just curb dialectics
Their light liberation
is 'mental', nay 'spiritual', an indifferent fashion
it forgets people's mind suffers practical lessons!

Religion forgets the real matter, it foments 'the ideal nation'
it forgets that until the children can't eat
there can be no damn real liberation!
On economics no words
few prayers, just self-inflicting sores
It deals with the effects and neglects the causation
Yet they urge me how to fight with their philistine jargon!

I smile for transcending apologies
when outside I end up doing sociology.
The burden of ideological hindrance,
its grim social “distance”
its servile black indifference
to what really matters
can't give back anymore
what has been wildly torn
inside me,
inside young religious naivety
the illusions, the fog
the faith that I lost
for the impact of carnivorous reek
stemming from tentacles of man's exploitation
of production-based alienation
of real matter that bigots can't see
of the hypocrisy of liberal factions
of illusions of religious reaction.


What else if not this kind of break..
could be more necessary
against these historical fairies
for the cognition sake.
