Rivals

Railroad tracks.

Faith and Reason are tired of warring.

Heartbroken and weary from many battles
Reason sat down on the tracks to ponder.

Belief had told him once,
“There’s no reason we can’t get along,
You are for this world, I for the next.”
But Reason had learned that
Belief wanted this world too.

He remembered for a moment
the television show about the siblings.
How one brother had all the fun
and none of the responsibility.
It made for great comedic conflict.

Reason pulled out his phone. He read
a post on social media which proved
the existence of God. He thought about
reading the comments but instead,
He closed his eyes and lay down on the steel.

Belief raced towards him on the rails,
gaining speed.
