The Allfather effect

My piece is about the ways that pantheons and ideas have been destructed through time. Some of these beliefs have lasted for hundreds of years but there was never really talk about how or why the believers just stopped believing.

By Chunjang from Project Citizen in Connecticut

All throughout time, who withstood the crime?

Which idea flowed through the web as fluid as slime?

Back in the day, it would be about the power.

Even though most gods were pretty damn sour.

See ideas are trees that produces the moral seeds.

The ideas that we gather are what form all our creeds.

Asir, Vanir, who should we pray to?

Maybe we should wait until the pantheon comes anew.

The story of how normal people defeated the allfather Odin.

Is one that time had sewn in.

This brought change to any future belief.

But honestly this could be seen as a relief.

Hear me out, humanity tries to find out the true way.

But if we look at history most of us sway.

We follow without thought.

Loving the hope it brought.

Even though some are corrupted.

Its where the truth erupted.

The true path won’t come without filter.

Because the true path, no matter the time will never wither.
