    Structurally, the poem stood out especially how you ended it. The repetition really drove in the overall meaning. Great use of metaphor.

    My own understanding of this is that god doesn't serve us, and we can live a better life than what believing in god could offer us.
    The lines "Hands held up palms open/
    Unclenched from your fist" brought in a great point often held by atheists; that we should put our "faith" and energy into the love, selflessness and ingenuity of human kind, not god. I really liked this, thanks for sharing.

    Well captured memory and superb sense of surveillance over the Question on God's being(perhaps existence). Without any hard intents, I would wonder why it's easy to believe in the scientific story on the existence of matter ( e.g., air) but not so; for a Creator as God...
    What more proofs would the world of 'blinded theories' be waiting for ( even after some kind character change & miracle manifestations) before she could come to a solemn embrace of reality..
    At least, it's some bravery; you shared. Thanks all same, for spilling the yoke.
