    So let me state, this is a great piece.
    I see You have it under Life & Society..
    But yet I feel a lot of possible religion in this piece.

    "But ours is a faith that makes free
    Not from sanity, but distress
    Heaven's protocol to sound health
    The surest path to genuine wealth"

    First Stanza: I feel like this stanza is explaining the purpose and reward for the faith it is describing. It is true the Greatest wealth in life if good health, Mental & physical.

    "It's the umbrella of mercy
    Where forgiveness, we breathe as air
    A community of sound minds
    Abode of gems, shinning their lights"

    Second Stanza: As most religions and believes the core value is Forgiveness. It rejuvenates ones soul, and shines a glorious light onto those often plagued with darkness.
    I like the way this was worded.

    "We're heaven's gift to planet Earth
    God's best-selling asset on ground
    The worth of a Christ-like is Life
    For same your cash, can never buy"

    Third Stanza: We created in the image of Christ, his children. Should live a life in his image.. I read this as a really interesting way to say in a world of consumerism, You can't buy your way into heaven.

    "We're one family, bound in love
    Basking in euphoria of joy
    Patriarchs of faith, by endurance
    Peace-patients of the universe"

    Four Stanza: All of us one family; Gods children. Should embrace and share acceptance of each other.

    "Will you miss me, when it's over?
    Does my exit bring tears or joy?
    Did I leave you, better or worse?
    Can you please now tell, Who am I?"

    Final Stanza: Some of life's greatest questions.. Will You be missed, and for what? Did You make a difference?
    A the end of this Journey.. Who are You really?

    I love that You ended this with questions.
    Powerful questions no less... I think each of us have these questions, and in the end are lucky to have even a few answers to them before death...

    Sorry for the extremely long comment, I just really wanted to break down and try to understand the piece. I myself am not religious, though I have varying levels in interest in multiply religions and different beliefs.

    I think overall this is a wonderful write, and a enjoyable read. 5.
