God and afterlife was the last illusion to go.

God and afterlife was the last illusion to go.
Life with no illusions is hell on earth.

The tooth-fairy and Easter Bunny,
Santa Claus, Lie
Lie, Lie, Lie

Grandparents and Puppy Dogs
Someone’s Mom, Gone
Gone, Gone, Gone

Soul Mate and Celebrity,
Notoriety, No
Show, No-Show

Youth and Time,
Hope, Die
Die, Die, Die

If it is not a lie
If it ever Shows
It will Die
or it will go.

But there’s God right? There’s that deep certainty that keeps you barely transcendent
The first, deepest pillar of our confidence, thank god our religion was the real one
We have this gift of faith. It is why we are going to be okay while others may die
It’s why our future will work out and nobody we love will ever become nothing, die

Then your Grandparents and everyone you knew in their generation die
Then Your parents get ready to die and a few of your friends Die
Animals die and you learn that all the brain parts and parts that make you, you
and the memories stored in your brain of everything you do, die

Then those who were supposedly the ones who did not lie, your link to the sky
Have raped and molested little boys, did they confess? Hell no, they ran
Those that are supposed to be in the most know about God, rape boys
And you’re supposed to believe they really believe in God? Heaven?

There is zero proof of an afterlife and life after death defies all science and comprehension
memories are stored in the brain, this has been proven
So, if you’re in some afterlife and you have no memory of them, you, us
Then you have no self, no identity and no awareness of what it is that remains

There has not been one truly miraculous thing that has ended up real,
Including everything that you have ever come across that seemed magical,
It always ends up a lie or a dream and ultimately, very human and unremarkable.
To dust and wind do fade all the signs of heaven and anything divine..

There’s not a single thing that has ever been found or past down
That has any power beyond us mortal humans walking around.

God and Heaven are the deepest, most important, illusions to go
By the time it finally becomes impossible to believe in God and religion
Everything of lesser importance has already gone, never was
There’s no more magic, nothing else, no more surprises

Life is a nightmare and a horror Show
When there is no trick strong enough
To convince your mind to believe in god
Or make you believe that heaven’s a go.

Without Sleep Nightmares Come to Life

Looking in mirror the other day –
Relieved my hair wasn’t bald or Grey
Like my dream, or
Nightmare, last night.

In my reflection for a while
I think about the nightmare –
the past couple years –
Figure out what was left.

The events that did this damage.
Nightmares I never thought would come,
Outside of a night’s terror here and there,
They came and they came – and come.

Last night, sleep absorbed
the yin version of my hair check,
Left only safe, positive
Yang outcomes for awaking.

I haven’t slept much through
this term of living horrors.
Had I awake absorbed both –
the yin and yang of living?

I walk outside,
See a big dead black bird
Right outside the door – stiff
on its back with claws straight up.

Wondering if now the bird
Sleeps away all the negative –
No pain left to live through –
Finally, dreamed it all away.

Or, will it only be nightmares
Here on out for this Fowl
Without the relief of waking up
to another chance, a better outcome?

If he now has nightmares,
I worry He’ll never awake –
Know that they aren’t real.
Will nightmares  never end?
