As a child I believed in a hard blue sky,
But not in a “blanket” of air;
As a child I believed in “wrong” and “right”
And most things were truly “black” or “white”.
Later I learned how we’d all evolved from the common clay
And how our beliefs arose from our needs and persisted to this day.
Without beliefs- I’m vertiginous, I need my sky- up there!
But humanity is what we all breathe- the sustaining atmosphere!
