View from Below


The halo is black against a white background,
Complete opposite of what Sunday school taught me.

I believe that the light is good, brings life, and heat,
But oh, by the way, it causes cancer.

The purity of the white beyond the light, gives me peace,
But makes me wonder, if I can get that shade at the paint store.

Time and time again, we look up for answers.
But we’re under a roof of our own preconceptions, when we do.
