Revisiting my Religion

I am not an atheist or an agnostic
For I know God exists

I am not a man of religion
But I believe in the power of prayer

I do not participate in holy rituals
The only prayer is through honesty in action

I do not follow men of God
Because there is one in each of us

I am not a Hindu, Muslim or Christian
However I respect another′s beliefs

I am not regular with visits to the temple
My place of worship is in my heart

I am not aware of what holy books say
But they can′t preach hatred or violence

I do not ask God for favours
I always thank him when things go right

I do not doubt your beliefs
I just want to reaffirm my own

I was not brought up this way
Just uncovered my beliefs along the way

I wish you hadn't added the disclaimer at the end.

(and,psst, I think you meant 'beliefs' in that last line)
