Cup of Tea - Poem
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:44:03 PM »
Cup of Tea

 There is a way of saying things
 that need to be said
 Without creating an enemy....
 And it all begins with the me.

 If religion is not your cup of tea
 And no god moves your soul
 that's okay with me.

 I do not need for you to believe
 or not believe in my god for me.

 So stop trying to use my god
 the one who lives inside of me
 to create hate among those who
 believe and those who do not
 believe.

 It is not a man's god that causes
 others not to believe
 It is the 'me' in one and how one
 chooses to sweeten his own
 religions' cup of tea.

 There is a way of saying things
 that need to be said
 Without creating an enemy....
 And it all begins with the me.

 If religion is not your cup of tea
 And no god moves your soul
 that's okay with me.

 I have one cup of tea only
 and only enough sweetener
 for one life's cup of tea.

There are many gods or no gods-as peoples' beliefs go.

 If religion is not your cup of tea
 And no god moves your soul
 that's okay with me.

 I do not need for you to believe
 or not believe in my god ...

  It is not a man's god that ...
 
 If.....no god moves your soul
 that's okay with me.

 No, I do not see where there should be a capital g.  jt
