i’ve reached the last page

i’ve reached the last page of this book
and if i don’t write between the lines
this is the last poem i’ll compose
so i should make it sound profound

but what is there that i can say
to change this world in which we live
i don’t believe in god or hell
so all i have is you and me

is this perchance the gift of life
to realize there’s nothing there
except the love that one might feel
towards a person dear to them

i’d like to think long on this thought
but i don’t have the time or space
suffice to say that were i wise
i’d say to you god bless the atheist

Author: rawgod

A man with a lot of strange experiences in my life. Haven't traveled that much per se, but have lived in a lot of different areas. English is the only language I have mastered, and the older I get, the more of it lose. Seniorhood gives me more time to self-reflect, but since time seems to go much faster, it feels like I don't have as much time for living as my younger selves did. I believe in spiritual atheism and responsible anarchy. These do not have to be oxymorons. Imagination is an incredible tool.

  1. Thank you for your proposed blessing from god. But, thank you no. I’ve seen what those blessings do to human thought and reason.

  2. Wonderful poem; wonderful thought – and that last line: priceless in its deliberate contradiction. (There’s a word for that kind of expression but, as with most “big” words, it escapes me entirely.)
