What if God isn't real?

What if all this time you were

Praying to a fabricated lie

Of long ago people with long ago lives?

Will you think about it?

Or will you block it from your mind?

What if faith is the limit?

And religion the judge for the blind?

Will you break away from it?

Will you sever yourself and bleed for it?

What if you could temper yourself?

Will your soul stop wondering?

Where is the door?

For ages, we ask:

What if it were our last day on earth?

What if, after all, I love you?

What if, a long time ago, we dreamed up this life?

What if truth is just another way

Of deceiving ourselves?

What do these human eyes see?

What do I know?
