RELIGION FOR ALL by Yelena Mkhitarian Every religion is sacred and wise, It gives a divine description of the world, God has created for us all. It says we are the superior creatures on earth That must be kind, tolerant and right in all. But some people take it wrong, Making religion a source of hatred and war, Spreading enmity and evil over the world. Men of the world! Beware of that! No religion says we must be apart! We must unite in the name of trust, Life and beauty around us. Don't we find these faiths in the creations Of geniuses of different credits? Pasternak, Shakespeare, Firdusi, Tolstoy, Tagore and Narekatsi Preach the same truths that sound alike To Christians and Muslims, Judes and Buddists: The generosity of soul and spirit, The purity of mind and feeling, The glory of deeds and feats. Aren't these the immortal values That all believers worship most? We all belong to the universal race Called HUMAN BEINGS, Who are responsible before God For the peace and goodness on earth, And this must be the religion Of all the believers in the world! -- Yelena Mkhitaryan was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. After graduating from secondary school in Tbilisi she came to Yerevan where she was admitted to the English Department of the Yerevan State University. At present she is professor of General Linguistics and Theoretical English Grammar at Yerevan State University. She is the author of a number of English textbooks and manuals for university students and numerous articles on linguistics, English grammar in particular. Writing poems has become a kind of inspiration for her of late, but she has not published any of her writings yet.
