Exorcism

Let me be free

From the chains of the Church,

Ecclesiastical offices and dignitaries

That bound me with their holy orders—

Propaganda all!

Hocus-Pocus,

Bell, book, and candle,

Release me from the ponderous weight

Of velvet vestments

And pontifical babble!

Let my soul soar

High above cathedrals made of stone

And the vain, idle ceremonies

Of the Wardens of the Word—

Who have stood so long between God and me!

I worship the Creator through the spiritual path that becomes more intimate than the narrow road of doctrine and established religion...so I can relate to this piece well. Beautiful execution in this write, Carol.

It seems that it is time for a complete "Exorcism".

This poem developed the subject well to the penultimate line... There the exorcism didn't work. The seventh word of the closing line comes from the Greek-Roman empire, and it means I SALUTE ZEUS. (ZEUS-DEUS-TEUS-ODIN.)

I read a profound composition... "Exorcism" is a poetic accomplished goal, and the subject dealt developed a clear picture to convey the message.

In admiration,

I like this poem for its simplicity. The message is clear and the language flows very well without rhyme. Nice work.

By exercising your free will, you are no longer shackled. Go and sin no more.

Peace,

That's what's messed up Christ's message: mankind and their interpretations of what God should be. Sad. Jesus Himself said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. NO MAN cometh unto the Father but by Me." (Forget where it is in the Bible, but it's in there.) A poignant call for change ... if it isn't too late. Well done, Carol.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Carol,

I've always believed that going directly to the Source carries more weight. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.
