Divine Love's Stripping: A Poem
Whether it's Christian or Hindu heart
there is no label of love that better sells
and it just looks so futile trying to be smart
over sounds of church's or a holy cow's bells.
Symbols that divide us in faith and reason
make of human history such a crazy story
with loving and hating having their season
and an insane violence basking in its glory.
Where are those gods when human hearts go cold
like some heavenly cops hiding in dark places
feasting on holy doughnuts in chariot of gold
only in some books showing their faces.
Maybe love is better without all that fancy dressing
into those symbols that confuse human mind
nakedness is always more of a blessing
whether love is divine or of other kind.
Indeed, love is one in a child and in a sinner
hearts beating same under any kind of skin
it's no need to call some of them cleaner
since no one is sinless to name it a sin.
So, could we proclaim such a stripping as divine
freeing our hearts from symbols and names
from every label and discriminating sign
free from all those separating games.
