New Visitors

“What is God?” asked my young child
Rightfully expecting her father to know the answer
I smiled, knowing that not only did I not know the answer
Nobody else did too either
Though many have fought, killed and died
For a notion that is nothing more than a belief
If they were ever entirely honest with themselves
They would say “this is merely my belief”
Unlikely though… Too much investment has been poured
Into these black holes of religion
Promises of paradise, paid for faith, if not fear
How strange we are,
Us very new visitors to the universe
To even consider being arrogant enough
To assume that we know the answer at all.
