This Little Light

Religion gets
a bad name
and carries
all the blame.
Organized religion plays
the culprit.
Religious groups
just split and split
Over this and that
and tit for tat.
Irony just smiles
and shakes her head.
True religion is about
the opposite instead.
Root religare means
to bind, come together
and attach with
the light tether
of God’s grace.
So what to do
in the mean time?
Find kindred spirits —
let your little light shine
until you split, too.
Then sing the Kyrie
and continue to pray.
The results are not
up to you.
So just be one
of the faithful
to do the job,
of “doing justice,
loving mercy
and walking humbly
with your God.”
