Religion is a prison for everyone.

It keeps you bound up inside,



It keeps others out,

those not like us.

We sit in judgment,

blind to our own sin.

Whatever it is

that we want

feels like

God’s will.


we disagree with

is of the devil.

The bars of our cells

are made of

sturdy Old Testament scripture.

Religion is a prison,

no matter what side

of the bars you’re on.
