The Gates of Nothingness

If life was born out of a random chance event,
not God’s revolt against nothingness,
life may be without meaning,
unplanned, unmanageable and not understandable.
A life where God is only a convenience word,
a word to drag in when explaining gets difficult
and excuses, not answers, are more convenient.
A life without support at the gates of nothingness.
