in the beginning

The beginning

When I went to school, it was only on religion

Christianity! Jesus with his cross and Danial fighting

a giant ogre, none of the pupils, believed any of this

yet it was entertaining stuff while we wait for

the school term to end so we could jump on our bikes

and play cowboy and Indians.

But what though as a child sticks lately, I have been

thinking of the origin of religion it must go back

thousands of years long before Christianity is there

a beginning, or is it all man’s fear of death?

Perhaps not, once a word was spoken but mankind

forgot, the memory persisted, and we have been

looking for the truth ever since.

Sadly, a break from the elders and the teaching you talk of would
probably elicit from a pal the words "Where would you be heading?"
In certain non-Christian parts of today's world, that's likely to be
"Who are you beheading?"
