It seems I believe out of habit

With no real agency at all

Raised and programmed inside my head

Whose to say, God isn't the people in control

Values pushed, fear inflicted

God isn't perfect at all.

 

Inside of me, I know what's right

And there is something that knows

right through me

I won't go to hell, and I won't be damned

For all,  in your eyes, that I couldn't be.

I'm not the greatest child

And I'm sure, a struggling adult

But my religion is what's inside of me

My relationship with no one but me.
