Heretic


Freedom
leads to questions
testing and rejecting
delusion and mythology.
Aware

Nietzsche
and his madmen
declared that ‘god is dead.’
How could we know if god was ever
alive?

unsure
I break thin ice
and test for hot water
lurking deep in the void beneath.
Nothing.

where is
the swift thunder
to reveal the error
of my naive wayward thinking?
Silence.

Alone
without belief
I lament paradise
my god why have you forsaken
the world?

Hello?
I call out loud.
Listen for the divine
and hear only the beating of
our hearts.
