So many look to things to fulfill
Their religious needs instead of
Looking into their souls and looking
To their diety to fill their spiritual needs
And bring them what they look for
In the afterlife and in their current life.
They don't want to grab hold of
Their religion and make it theirs again.
They want to find a way to
Commercialize it like so many companies
In this day and age have already
Done to what was a great spiritual holiday.
More and more people are loosing
Touch with their roots as more and more
Days turn to stores to send them goods
They don't need in their daily lives
Or in their religious practices.
They see a book they feel they need,
A knife that they could have already found
In their own kitchen and given a new
Use instead of letting it rust in a drawer
Where it would have remained completely
Unseen by the world.
