Day 91 prompt: Religion
Today’s poem will be about religion,
I don’t even know what that is,
my seven-year-old replied.
I looked up a dictionary definition.
To explain, I needed larger,
more unfamiliar terms
than the word itself.
While I struggled to communicate,
my nine-year-old chimed in.
You know how at school,
some people celebrate Christmas?
But others have Hanukah,
Kwanzaa or Diwali.
And that was enough.
Thank god my child decided she’s an athiest.
