Almighty father

I don't need a big daddy
Who knows everything I do
Makes me beg for his attention
While demanding unwavering loyalty

I don't want an absentee father
That never speaks directly
And yet managed to dictate rules
Put on paper eons before I was born

I'm supposed to want a papa
But I'm not yearning to be overseen
Or pining for the scales of afterlife
Heaven seems boring and hell unfair

Perhaps my atheism is feminist
Because religion seems male to me
Just like I don't need a man in my life
I don't choose an almighty father
