Kind Atheist

I am an unwavering atheist
No faith and no spritality in me
But I would never wish to remove
The innocent belief of another

How cruel a person I would be
To wish someone lose faith
Just so they don't contradict
My strongly held worldview

I dont care how you find comfort
In this random and uncaring world
If it doent harm you or another
I encourage any peace you can keep

The only part of faith and belief
I can always disagree with
Is that which harms or shames
Or forces itself onto another

I am not an unkind person
Some even call me empathetic
My lack of belief and faith
Doesnt make me a less caring human.

Painfully human

Being human hurts peoples feelings
When I treat you like I wanna be treated
Golden rule doen't account for difference
When I treat you as you expect
Platinum rule doesnt teach difference
When I act without reflecting
I'm almost guarenteed to hurt another
There is no rule for just being ourselves
No rule that will stop unintentional hurt
So like a gentle bull in a china shop
I am myself but try not to harm
I know being me is right for me
But may not be what others need.
