Truth and Lie

Truth and Lie
2015 08 26

That Great Lie of Paul, that we resurrect
after death, must be erased from all minds
and reformed with compassionate love
for all souls, since we only live one life,
because it drives believers to commit
horrible acts of oppression and hate,
and instead should be replaced with Great Truth
of Epicurus that all living things
are formed from atoms that assemble once
in organic creatures who wake from dream
and perceive beauty of this teeming world.
We only live one life in changing world,
so we should treat every creature with love,
for once we die we disappear forever.
