Believing in something like an Ultimate Intelligence

that hides behind all the vast universal creation

certainly is making a lot of reasonable sense

but without added religious indoctrination.


To every logical mind it's really hard to digest

though easy to grasp free range of believing

since humans have this need in their chest

to create an alternate truth, one deceiving.


Well, it is about this unfortunate existential fear

gravitating all around this imminence of dying

thus belief in afterlife comes little more clear

making all religious racket look satisfying.


Let's face it, folks, no one ever came back

so until we get some evidence we can trust

the salvation logicalness seems out of whack

calling for our existential wisdom to little adjust.


Between suicide bomber's belief in afterlife rewards

and any other believer in his faithful soul's salvation

there is no difference according to any at all records

of some mortal ass reappearing as his reincarnation.


Personally, I also believe that we don't die

but not by far the way religions may explain

it's biocetrism's definition of life that I may buy

and as for other theorisms I opt for staying sane.


My belief has no base in that fear

to me it's actually an intuitive trip

though life is precious and dear

it's all way out of a logical grip.
