Eden’s Children

The heartbreak of a shuttered mind
Willful ignorance mortared by fear
Divisive walls you yourself has built
For you
There is no heaven
No hell
No self beside
Cessation at the close of life
Comfort in a lack of permanence
How terrifying to think beyond this lifetime
That, perhaps, there is beyond the end of night
How easy to be an atheist
Devotee at the church of non-believers
So ardently desirous of being nothing
Bearing no weight of responsibility for eternity
Souls suspended
Perpetually seeking enlightenment
Yet tragically incapable of growth
Children of Eden
Ever in search of answers to questions beyond their asking
