Anthem Of The Atheist - Poem by AMyth Kulkarni

God didn’t create man but the other way round,
Miracles are a farce not worth a pound,
When nothing’s going right god is our need
To give us hope and strength to succeed

Only when we feel ourselves as weak
That god’s help we go and seek,
Not god himself but our faith in it
Gives us strength to try and never quit.

Love and faith alone have the strength
To make straight of what is bent,
Like the body the soul to is temporary,
Man can’t accept this and hence the worry.

He thus invented heaven and hell
But who’s seen them and come back to tell,
Though I don’t believe there’s god above
I believe in the message of kindness and love.

But people in the name of god kill,
Do they think forgive god will?
For me his message is bigger than him,
The day we realize, the world will be a living dream.
