Things I Wish I Believed

By , St. Louis, MO

I wish I believed
in religion instead of
a greedy, free-for-all world
with no guidance from above.

I wish I believed
in life after death
rather than a state of nothingness,
all consciousness gone.

I wish I believed
that the sun will always rise,
instead of knowing that one day
its warm glow will cease.

I wish I believed
that our lives have purpose
rather than feeling like my
life and death mean nothing.

I wish I believed
in true love instead of
cynical people who only desire
brief physical connections.

Lastly, I wish I believed
in myself, for all I see
is a shell of a person
who doesn’t believe in anything.
