Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


my world
without god
is a place
in which
i may be able
to survive.
no longer
am i fit only
for hell;
i’m just
one of billions
of similar
life forms
on this
odd little planet
on one side
of everywhere.
to be honest,
i would
like to live
but that
was never
an option.
total annihilation
is not something
i look forward to,
but the inevitable
for every bit
of everything
funny how
peaceful & relaxed
that makes me.
god demanded
more than i had.
reality demands,
and promises,
