i’m no theologian

it’s not that i don’t believe in god: it’s that i don’t care

it’s the fact that whether there is a god or not
is irrelevant: i have made the decision
i don’t want to hurt others or see others hurting

so i choose to be kind
not because someone else told me to
but because it is good to ease suffering
it is good to be gentle and kind

if a god exists and is just and merciful
my kindness will be acknowledged

if a god exists and is not just and merciful
i did not owe them worship or attention

if no god exists at all i have lost nothing
and the world is still better for my existence
