Baptized out of Religion


baptism_-_marcellinus_and_peterI’ve been
Baptized out of religion
Yet the wounds I sustained
Have lingered

Promise of ever afters
took seed
Learning rights and wrongs
With a mind too young to be freed

Forcefully fed or eagerly received
Does it matter?
In a nest beaks open
For food or poison

Dressed in white I
Immersed with hopes and resentments
and emerged to my surprise
Baptized out of religion
