Dear God,

I walked out
Of the cathedral,

I ran away
From the assembly,

Because…

Religion was killing me;
It stabbed me
Every Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday.

I was taught
To worship a sculptured Jesus
And forced to serve
A God who is only found
On the pages
Of their fic-religious books;
The ones I can only get
On Amazon, Okada and Jumia.


(Excerpts from Dear God, Olaitan Maryam M.)
