“The stars shine for us”, we’ve been told, “there’s someone watching over”, and we’re sold. Then we grow up, realise these lies are centuries old.

They say there’s an eternal fire burning within, is it the same fire that burns through your soul? Why is it too late by the time we realise hopes are a game played foul?

When people are stupid enough to believe, mad men turn into gods. When idols aren’t enough to shape the faith, Gods have no form. Did creation lead to evolution? Is it evolution that caused creation? Evolution or creation? What do you know?

I never understood why truth has always been a virtue when lies are believed to be true. What is bad for me might be good to you. So tell me, what is it that we do? Why is my right your wrong?

“Where we’re from” doesn’t matter when we don’t know where we belong.

  2. These questions are there since the beginning and who knows, they will live till the end too!!
    The answers are not there and if they are then just to give birth to new questions.
    The last two lines are well written.✨💫

            1. If you mix it up with gods and goddesses, yes. Otherwise its just communities who follow a certain set of rules and beliefs. As long as they follow whatever they believe and doesn’t hurt others, it’s fine. I believe, some sensible ancestors knew that its difficult to control the reckless humans with science and facts. So they interconnected everything with God to create fear. Don’t do it, God will punish 😱. I don’t think God has any idea about what humans are doing in its name 😀

            2. 😀 Well, yes. But, i don’t know if it’s how people describe as a supernatural power source and all. May be, it is. Or what if the whole universe is just a science project done by some kid in some other world. He might have thrown it to the dark corner of the attic with a big bang, it broke into pieces and things started growing on it. One day he may find it again while cleaning the attic and see how bad it has become. he may repair it, or burn it marking the end of our universe. Who knows. I am a total weirdo when it comes to talking about these things, pardon me 😀

            3. Gods! We created Gods. One for sun, one for water, one for fire, there is one for every damn thing out there! so many! I think that was just a trick by ancestors to help save the resources 😀 But don’t you think, just like we say certain things are man-made, someone is responsible for the existence of whatever we call the Universe as well.

            4. Now that’s a freaking good point that you have. I once believed aliens created life and flew away to their home planet or perished. But god? Nah.
              I stopped believing in that too because not believing gives me new questions to ponder on.

            5. At the end of that movie, Will smith keeps a set of aliens inside a locker right? I used to think that as another theory. Our universe is something kept inside a locker by some alien. His universe in another locker. One day the alien may open the locker door and we may get a chance to see the god 😅

            6. 😀 you are associating it with the meaning humans have given it. I believe that there is a creator no matter how many parallel worlds are there.
              Ok. That’s too much craziness for a day. The one human I created just dozed off 😀I am also going to sleep. Have a nice day, Bharath!

            1. Same here! I loathe to compare myself with others, let alone make someone else my inspiration. I may adore them .. or their skills but I believe that inspiration should come from within.

            2. Okay..I can perform this only in stages.. I don’t know why.. but standing on a stage.. I become a whole new person. That’s my comfortable space.

            1. You should reconsider it, brother. It might seem like a humongous task and well it is but you certainly got it in you, brother. Think about it.
