Hello.
I am God.
Well not really,
but should it matter
if I pretend to be him,
even if its for a second?
Why can I not assert my right
to create the rules that govern
how I choose to live out my life?
Is a figurative thought without base
supposed to govern the way I live today?
Are we not all on a ship of fools if we try
to group ourselves into collectives without soul?

The answer is simply,
"Who cares?"

I don't care, and frankly,
you shouldn't either.

We exist, as humans,
trapped by our bodies,
trying to escape reality
with the false promise
of freedom and hope
that is shoved down our throats.

I am God.
Prove me wrong.
I am God.
Believe in me.
I am God
Receive my teaching.
I am God,
yet I'm not.

Holy art thou man who shines his light on a capricious land where the golden idols of sand and sea cast me into nefarious deeds of dark and light where God himself shines brighter than all who dwell.

God is dead. I have killed him. So I have killed life by killing God.

We are all hollow,
so fill the void
that lies inside.

The void is God.

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;" -Edgar All

Good one, Elias. I admire the difference of message.  Ancient Hindu texts (the Vedas, and the Upaisads) teach that we are all part of Brahman (the ultimate Reality) and all else is Illusion.  Upon death the spark of Brahman within each (the atman)returns to the Whole, for reassignment, as it were.  Works for me, and thank you very much for your novel and refreshing outlook.
