What! Religion?

Mankind has since the beginning
been plagued by uncertainties,
so they turned to religion.
Or was it the other way round;
that religion had actually sought them out?
god talked to so many people?
wonder why he is keeping so quiet now
beginning of an end
faded up with homo sapiens
turning to some new creatures
he created somewhere out there?
But who is the God behind all of us?
Yahweh? Allah? Jesus Christ? Brahma?
Much confusion despite continuous
Divinations from above.
Has religion solved men's woes
Or has it made them more secure?
Seems like we're heading the other way
Mankind has cast the greatest mystery
to the world; the mystery of a Creator.
But where is he? Among the Jews, the Muslims,
the Christians, the Buddhists or the Hindus...
All these questions point to only one
probability....religion has
come too early to mankind
whose intelligence is not ready for it!
i prefer the days when
men sang to the moon
yelled to waterfalls
cried to the sky
for answers to their predicardments!

Curiously enough, Saint Nicholas of Cusa seems to have agreed with you in his own way! Not surprising perhaps - he's the most Eastern, non-dualist, Advaita, thinker in the West... Nice poem, John.
