In this life of ignorance,

This thing that we all share,

Where we live our life from day to day,

And hope someone will care.

.

Some people have religion,

And some believe in fate,

They believe we have no choice,

Its all written, love and hate.

.

They think we cannot reason,

That we should not question why,

That our life is all mapped out,

From our birth, until we die.

.

Some think we have Free Will,

And that choices made are ours,

Some thing that life, it has no point,

It's just us counting down the hours.

.

The problem with these points of view,

And the things they try to say,

Is that we dont know what is right,

We don't know the true way.

.

The thing is, nothing's returned,

Not a demon, ghost or wraith,

And so we only have one choice,

We must choose to keep our Faith.
