I am a spiritual man
I believe

stuff.

I have read a lot, lived
a bunch, experienced
much, seen and did

things

Other people of different
places, peoples, cultures
old ways and fresh ideas.
have always piqued
my curiosity

Ideas of life, concepts of

God, the/a hereafter,
meanings of life, purposes
for existing.

Questions, asked
repeatedly, differently
answers given
vaguely, with a shrug
howling in defiance

Sometimes, the answers
actually matched the
questions being asked or
the puzzle being challenged

Sometimes

Why, how, why, why, why?
Why, you say?

always, still more why.

‘How’ always finishing a
distant, disinterested second.

I am a spiritual man.
I believe

stuff.

Who believes

me?
