In the beginning . . .

it says which confused me
because my mother said
God always was
and always will be

that’s what eternity means
which didn’t make sense
because how could there
be something that

didn’t have a beginning
or an end and it sometimes
kept me awake
trying to figure

it out because if my mother
said so it had to be true
she never lied to me
except for Santa Claus

which she explained
really wasn’t a lie
just a way of playing
Let’s Pretend just for fun

  1. I always like poems that question theology; most of my questioning started at an early age too. What I especially like about this poem is that it hints at the possibility (at least) that theology is also "pretend just for fun."
