Now it is over. (Good Friday poem)

Now it is done.

Did you really exist

or not?

No one knows, for certain, as history is silent on this point.

Even as on the existence of God, who as Dawkins says, you can neither prove nor disprove.

But can you imagine a world without the gospels?

Maybe you can, I can’t.

Can you imagine one without the stories of the virgin birth, the miracles, the parables, the crucifixion, the resurrection, the ascension, the rich cast of characters?

Maybe you can, I can’t.

Story, myth, poetry, religion, spirituality, culture, architecture, iconography, scrolls, identity –

Ah! potent mix of a tapestried life, though not a shred of evidence to prove any of it –

And it even leads to virtue –

This is weird!

“False” beliefs lead some to virtue.

Well, must be having something to do with who you are.

Jesus was right, after all.

All are daughters and sons of divinity or the divine and gods but some become devils and some don’t want to live as God’s children.

End of day, the sun still remains the sun.
