Traped in a world of guilt and restraint...I did what I could-I denyed all I was.
I swore to my family, to friends, to all; I built my testimony, confirmed my call...hypocracy built as I progressed in the way.
Disception so blinding I could not see, the people judged in my infirmaty.
I woke one day-preparing to fight, but decided with trembling it was all very trite.
I stand now, shackles thrown off...a child reborn; condemned to the lost.
My eyes have been opened, but I fear to see, the religious hypocracy built with in me.
I tried to gain freedom once through sacrifice; it was a copout on life...oh dear sacrifice.
Now freedom attained; now guilt sustained, of my loss of piety and religiousity.
What of these years spent of devotion and prayer...a hollowness inside..striped totally bare.
What do I have that will full this great void....my religion has washed up; my hope dispelled?
Is freedom the answer? Independent thought the road...which travels to peace, in souls great abode.
