Our Birthright

A proprietary hold on God,

religion does proclaim


Defining what we know inside

our souls will they reclaim


The Cross or Torah, Buddhist lore

each ritual decries


What can’t be owned or scripted pure

through centuries of lies


Divinity a birthright deigned

for those who search to find


What God embeds in every soul

—that structure can’t define


(The New Room: May, 2022)
