Day 4- My religious affiliations:
From a truly religious point of view
My family is Hindu ,
Not the chaste brahmanical variety that eat no onion, no garlic, no egg
But instead the kind who’ll hog on
non vegetarian meals all day
And in the evening , pray.
My family has built a Hindu temple in my town.
My grandmother runs it .
I run away from it , unless going there means getting food.
I am less of a Hindu than I ought to be, I guess.
I try my best to believe , but I would rather breathe easy knowing everything will be alright –
Eventually, including me.
I don’t know if there’s a God up there.
I hope there is , but it’s weird –
to imagine the world being run
By a disinterested puppeteer .
I wonder if he’s busy with work
and can’t see ,
each of his children fights
Each day a different battle ,
Each day a different bully .
I may be a Hindu,
I don’t know enough about it to truly understand,
I doubt a little here and there,
But I can try my spiritual hand ,
I meditate but not on God –
But on what I can control .
Yet sometimes I wonder if He’d find
Our ways of worship droll.
I leave you in the tuition of God, Amen.
