I Live In A World…

The bell 
does not gong
to welcome 
the apotheosis... 
neither myths
nor paeans 
no one knows
what it means 
to pray; to beseech
heads unbowed
we stand. 

...I live in a world
where gods do not exist...

Is this a world 
where we are equal?
where suffering
holds no sway?
is karma...
a fable of the mind?
do deeds matter?
do good and evil 
remain undefined?
no promises 
of an afterlife

...I live in a world
where gods do not exist...

This one was quite a challenge. Haha 😄

I chose to work with the idea of the things that would not exist, if the faith or belief in God didn’t. If man didn’t have a deity to worship, the rites and belief surrounding that deity would also cease to exist. Thanks for reading. 💕
