Confused thoughts about my spirituality, and trying to look for answers in spite of my strong anti-theistic worldview back then. Wrote this at a very confusing time in my life, before I realised
that I didn't have to be faithless to oppose organised religion.

Lady of wisdom, love, light

Guide me through the shadows of the night

Lead me from my eternal plight

The monster, raging always


My own mind is the enemy

My Lady, are you telling me

To suffer the burdens and carry on

In hopes of a better day?


I cannot hold out that long,

My Lady; won’t you tell me

How to live? That I may sacrifice

My free will for your mercy


It’s not my place to ask for it,

But My Lady, need it I do;

Please help me find love, or

Take it all away, I beg of you.
