NaPoWriMo Day 5

(I know this is similar to what I wrote yesterday. I'm just pondering this subject lately.)


For atheists, trust in
     each other is the
     only acceptable faith-
     and what a terrifying faith
     it is, to believe
     in us, such fallible creatures.

Sometimes, faith in god
     seems more reasonable-
     the whims of an unseen
     spirit easier on the
     heart than the betrayal
     of our own kind

Or perhaps we just
     imagine that's the case-
     a god does not exist
     to hurt us.
