When we were young we weren’t stupid
When we were young daily we believed
Daily we thanked
Frequently in a week we prayed
Sunday or Saturday we went to church and we prayed
Sunday school we attended but
Did we understand?
Then we grew older
Educated we became
We learned of Science
And science never failed to question
Science taught us to question
We started to question
We questioned until we stopped believing but
Did we lose faith?
Now we say we don’t believe
We saw the evil but never defended the weak
We say we couldn’t do much
We say it was beyond our control
We say the Tsunami came out of nowhere
We say the earthquake and
The hurricane did not warn us early enough but
Were we blind to the hunger?
Perhaps it was beyond our control was
The excuses we learned through science and education
We can’t say the name
We are too proud
We have made it public that we do not believe
At times we question
Secretly we say something close to a prayer
We even swear in the name of the one we do not believe in
We are uncertain enough but
Are we different?
I sow the Agnostic’s prayer and you reap the agnostic reality.
