Happiness is shared?

Thought brings out righteousness
and beliefs make people believe
they’re universal
and their happiness is shared
although your desires
and mine differ
and what provokes happiness in you
frustrates me.

A higher power
raises more questions in me
without answers
for you, you find safety
and solace in letting GOD guide you
for me I guide myself
and respect in the human condition
trying to pursue the common good
and my own happiness
it’s a balance
which brings about stress.

Bowing to another
isn’t in me
nor would I want my feet
bathed in their saliva
I find respect in a partner
them to me and me to them
if another believes in bowing
and submissive thoughts
that is their thought
and their choice
and I will not try to pursue them
I will live as me
and if they scream differently
I’ll tell them my life is mine
and theirs is theirs.

Keep your scripture
keep your rules
and your conflictive morals
live them
be them
speak them
but I must live as me
and you as you
and that’s where the arrogance steps in
because your beliefs
are seeping within our justice systems
and it’s time
for us to clean up the spills
properly dispensing your poisons
back into your veins
where they belong.

Thanks for reading.
