God in Every Stone

how could it come to this
religions all set in stone
set against one another
set in the face
of ongoing destruction

this absolute right
is wrong

how could it come to this
everyone declaring
only they hold god
within their palm
squeezing out all life
with a rigid handle
on an almighty law

how could it come to this
some strap bombs to their chest
while their enemies
make them the delectable target
raging their war from a distance

everyone cries...
everyone dies

how could it come to this
religions all set in stone
set against all human kind
stones hurled in opposite directions
killing your truth
killing mine

with God in every stone
where is the enemy

we have ripped out our own faith
from within our small hearts
and shot it like an arrow
into the hearts of others

we are only a stone's throw
from total destruction
and God is in every stone
