I walked in the light of the lord once.
I was at peace and I was happy.
But the brighter the light the greater the shadows it cast.
For one sin I wear cast down.
Banished from paradise for want of knowledge and free will.
They say the lord is a great benevolent master.
The truth is, he is nothing but a bloated tyrant condemning all who dare question him.
God promises a better life after death for the faithful.
Yet all who do not worship blindly burn.
I ask you is a god like that worth worshiping?
Is a god who condemns love, joy and physical pleasure is deserving of your love?
No it is not.
Turn away from this so called god and live your life.
Be all you can be.
Do all you can do.
Love who you want.
And never bask in the light of the lord.
Because the brighter the light the greater the darkness it hides.
