19 (who?)
They told me that God reigned high

And taught me his rules and story

So that on the day that I die

I could live up there in his glory

But I hear the voices all around

That what I learned was just a lie

No glory of God can be found

And my faith is bound to die

Now I've seen a mother's warmth to her son

Protecting him from all around

And men who live like we are one

Even though they sleep on the ground

I've seen people give all they have

So a stranger's life may be free

And if we all go down this path

Life is better, you will see

So if we all give into this love

And live life for all its worth

Then I don't need a god above         

Because his light is here on earth
A poem giving some of my opinions.

lovely piece, i am an Atheist myself so i pretty much believe we are our own light, we don't need some invisible man above to tell us what to do. A man is a master of himself. :nod:

one little thing though, i believe you meant reigned not reined in the first verse

I did, thank you for the catch :)
And I am not sure if God exists or not, but I agree with most of that

It did seem religious at first, but based on some of your comments that wasn't the goal.  Noting that, my suggestion is to nix the word "But" from the beginning of the third stanza; that one word is what seems to set you in stark opposition to the comments of the second stanza, however if you leave it out, the stanza doesn't necessarily cast you on either side of the line of God Y/N.  That's my suggestion on how to approach that.

I normally don't enjoy religious writings, but I  must say, this is really nice. Great job. I loved it.
