Manna from a Dirty Soul

You see I’m free.
I’m free from the elaborate chains you enforced upon me,
Decadent in all its splendour

That restrained and choked the life within me
All in the name of being Holy

So take it back.
If being this Holy Being takes away my humanity and leaves me lost and in pain

Take it and swallow it.

Like that paper pill that was meant to sedate and purify me.

See what your ill-fed doctrine led me too
Taking me away from all the light that I knew.

Taking Her from all the light she used to show

One day I pray you release her too…

But right now this Blue Phoenix is taking flight,
From all that’s dead and constantly killing

Over a field of Bodies I fly
Calling out musical notes of salvation

To find a place where my soul may reside in peace

A sanctuary not to be bought with my servitude or loyalty
But with My Love.

So let me swallow my own truth,
Even at the shock and exasperation of others

I am my Religion.
