Yours. Alone

Can’t you see that you choose your gods

That you accept and reject edicts of your religion

The same way you exercise biases and preferences

That you inherit from your forebears

Or glean from your environment

Can’t you see that you and you alone

Are responsible for everything you think and say and do

Have a go

Take full responsibility for your destiny

Feel the empowerment

Feel the enthusiasm

Feel the optimism

Live each day

Free of the belief that your fate is dictated by others

Free of the burden of others’ expectations of you

Your only requirement

To acknowledge

That all your beliefs

That the way you practise your religion

That the way you regard others

That the way you respond to events

That the way you engage with the world

Are your choices

Yours

Alone
