The prompt was the line,” You live in a world, where no god exists”

A beautiful world

There is lot less strife

Less pain and sufferings

No arduous paths to follow

No archaic books to read

Nothing blinds the minds

Or squeezes them in tubes

Forcing them to embrace

Delusions and puerile beliefs

No lasting wars to spread

Messages of transient peace

No hatred for our brethren

Belonging to other streams

There’s no hell or heaven

To terrorise or entice

For you live in a world

Where no god exists


Morals, kindness and empathy as well as hatred, anger and jealousy are basic human traits. No religion can grant you some and no religion can take a few away.
