Always before were 'religious guys'
Went to church and prayed every night
They threw me around
I was treated like dirt
That's 'the way life was'
I accepted the hurt

But now there's you
And you treat me right
You tell me i'm pretty
Swear your love every night

How can our love be a sin
And those before be right?
I dont understand my church anymore
All I understand is tonight
Just trying to figure something complicated out.

Good poem. I'm sorry that you've been treated badly before. I've been treated wrong by some "super religious" guys... It's hard not to hate the church for what happened. Just don't hate God.

I dont hate either, I might not like either, but I dont hate them. I belive what I was trying to understand at the moment was my family's attitude toward my life.
Thank you for commenting.

Decided to check out your work since you commented on mine. Thanks you for the comment. The title of this piece drew my attention. First off, sorry you've had such a confusing experience. It is not supposed to be that way, but since you are dealing with imperfect people they get stuff wrong and can hurt others. Second, Christianity shouldn't be a religion. Religion is how man attempts to explain the spiritual. But the Bible itself says that people can't please God or understand the spiritual by themselves so Christianity as a religion fails. However, a relationship with the Christ is the truth and the way things are supposed be. It is Him coming to you, helping you where you are at b/c you aren't enough. No one is. And that is where alot of people, usually with good intentions, screw up. They think it is all about them and what they do and how they do it and making sure that others do it too. Nope. It is about you and your relationship with Jesus. Lastly, I had to write this because I hate confusion and hearing how people have been hurt by "the church". If I have confused you, I apologize. I'll give you the option of contacting me if you want to. I'm willing to talk, but it is your choice. Thanks again.

I'm not sure I agree with throwing christianity out the window entirely, but thanks for leaving such an awesome comment. I studied religion for some time, so I understand what you're saying and I appreciate it.
Thank you.

Religion, seemingly, is always in my way...

I hate Christianity- I grew up under their rules -_-

Yeah, it dies seem to get in the way.

Christianity in and of itself isnt bad. It's just the people who take it too far, I think.

ahh, I think I understand what the poem's about now. Funny, but I have had the exact same problem with my family. Perhaps that's what attracted me to your poem so much.
