Enough of it
Come with men
Do not follow me.
You have followed many for centuries.
Listen to me,
Do not repeat my words.
You have repeated words for centuries.
Do not adore me.
You have adored many for centuries.
Do not worship me.
You have worshipped holy persons for centuries.
I say – enough of this immature authorization.
Do not bend and kneel.
You have bent down and knelt for centuries.
I say – enough of this self- humiliation.
Do not condem me as an authority.
You have condemned enlighted ones for centuries.
I say – enough of this callous condemnation.
