I was born,
formed by the coming together of an egg and a sperm.
My Mother and Father’s DNA fused, developed full term.
There is no higher power, creator, deity or god,
Is a priest or minister that claims so, a fraud?
One creature with magical capacity looking down from above?
A judge and a jury, unforgiving, is not my idea of love.
A spiritual guide, unseen apparition watching all that we do,
Doesn’t this seem like a fantasy or hallucination to you?
I can’t hold onto a belief in something so unscientific.
These stories from ancient times, are certainly terrific.
We are here on this earth, masters of our own fates.
I'm not wasting my time wondering, what someday awaits.
No celestial or divine beings are idols of mine.
I don’t worship in a church, mosque, temple or shrine.
My good deeds and kindness come from within,
I don't need a book to tell me not to sin.
I'm not worried that my soul will be banished to hell,
Because in this life I am happy and treat others well.
It’s the here and the now, people alive that matter.
So please don’t involve me in your religious chatter.
