Take me up to the vacant moon
To look back down upon mankind
To gaze in awe of all we’ve done
And hold myself smug in those things
Take me further to Saturn’s rings… Continue

Anyone who has successfully deconverted knows how difficult that can be to give up on a cherished idea. I wrote a short poem expressing how difficult this was for me.

Disclaimer: This is my first blog a so I begin by apologizing for all the rules of blogging that I will break. Actually I'm not going to apologize for breaking the rules (for if they were important they would have been written down in a place where I would have read them . I am going to apologize for offending you. Hmmm...perhaps not; for insult is taken. never given and I… Continue

Atoms, molecules, and cells;
Skin and bone and organs...
Conscoiusness, thoughts, and emotions? I am feeling and moving and trembling.
Thoughts of everything and nothing floating about my mind; jumbled and mixed together, like a puzzle that is never quite solved. A jigsaw in my head, screaming to fit together, longing for its proper place.
Darkness encroaching on the light, making happiness meaningless yet glamorous. Unattainable solace… Continue

This one is by me (Stephanie Sargent), like my Transitional Haikus
fathomless night penetrated here ad there
by ghostly dots of light,
snowflakes on an empty asphalt parking lot
thinly spread by winter's first weak gasp,
vast black spaces beyond measure,
from their… Continue

Sometimes I wish I had never been born
Into this world of troubles and pain.
But then I wouldn't have known
The beauty of an early morn
Or the gentle caress of Summer rain.
I wouldn't have seen the grass so green
Or the azure blue of the sky.
I wouldn't have heard the songs of the birds
Or the children asking why.
Sometimes I feel so confused and lost
In a world of misery and fear.
But, given the… Continue

Today my favorite poem just came to mind out of the blue. When I first heard it over a decade ago, it was very helpful to me in realizing I didn't have to sacrifice myself, like I had been raised as a christian. I am also requesting that you share your favorite words or images that have helped you find yourself, especially in regards to becoming godless. The poem and the request are… Continue

I am by no means a perfect speller,
Or even great at grammar,
But reading a post written in text-speak
Is like bashing my eyes with a hammer!
Seriously, I cannot be the only one
Who sees are language die
Every time u use u for "you"
and refuse to capitalize an i.
when numbers stand 4 words
and punctuations thrown 2 the wind
i dont no where 1 line ends
n where the next begins...
the overuse of ellipses
can bring… Continue

The death-like frigid air
sharpens its blades upon your sputtering lungs
having burrowed its way through twin nasal cavities
it crystallizes your breaths from the inside out.
Suffocating your zephyr with its own,
upon exhale, your life visibly evaporates before you.
And so it was with us that in defense of this nipping assault
with hands split and fractured like dried up ravines
we struggled to even adjust our wooly scarves over each others chapped… Continue

You judge us and tell us
"You're going to hell"
It's fallen on deaf ears
can't you tell?
we don't want your god
so stop your trying
whatever you're selling
we ain't buying
oppression and lies
submission and fear
"You better pray,
the end is near"
bigotry and hatred
I want no part of
I mean… Continue

"I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy next to me."

but a single pixel in space.
insignificant, or perfectly in place?
multiplying into megascopic reactions.
Little steps taken,
significant, or trite transactions?
I live on this pixel,
this pixel called, “Earth,”
and sometimes I wonder,
what it’s all worth.

The relentless wrath of revenge revolves a rage remarkably reasonless.
Each side tied to stride inside an eye for an eye however unjustified.
Lies disguise this senseless mess, an infinite regress, obsessed to penalize.
Victims vandalize and violate virtues guide when they too, victimize.
The prize? Everyone dies.

As the momentum builds,
the air increasingly glides through your fingers
Your palms collide.
As soon as you can peel your hands off of each other,
Wham! Wham!… Wham!
Again, you repeat
with great apelike movements.
A primitive means to communicate indeed,
Your hands red and stinging, yet a grin,
following the air between your fingertips
an ancestral smile lights up your face.

The fattest fairytale ever fed
fixes a folly to foil ones head.
Flattering its host with features to attract,
it forges a fiction flavored like fact.
It’s firm to force that flesh will fade
and fibers internal are forever in grade.
Made in faith this figure does flower,
framed as the most famous, favorite, phantasmal power.
Our father who art not in heaven,
figure in yet another seven
days or more
to free us from each and every… Continue
