Marisa's Diary

Why does your god care what you wear?
To go to the altar in worship and prayer
Does god care so much for the cost of your clothes?
That he doesn’t mind the way you turn up your nose
At the ones who show up in their best Sunday rags
And carry their purses in brown paper bags
Do his teachings encourage your bigotry?
Do they really say your path is the best one for me?
Will heaven be denied to the ones who care less?
For the cost of stained glass, that the rich man has blessed
Or will the final day of reckoning show crystal clear
The things held in our hearts are the things that we fear
For the poor will always be welcomed in kind
By those who know the truth of things divine

  1. This is great. Depicts the confusion so many bear wearing the right clothes, but not much more right.
