the only religion that i follow is love

i was born a hindu,

who oh fell in love with the one oh so kind and secretly beautiful;

only to marry her, as she smiled at me looking oh so exquisite while wearing a hijab

only to then, hear our kids singing carols in the church

and oh how beautiful was it all?

for i had my love, in my embrace

and daughter’s as adorable as their mom

oh i found her, and oh all of it was but my destiny

for she was all i ever needed
