When The Gods Choose
No safe place to escape to no matter how fast we run.
It wells up deep inside us, and sweeps us away like a tide,
And takes us to their light which is brighter than the sun.
We cannot reject that which the Mighty Gods have decreed,
And it is impossible to ignore the voice that whispers in our ear,
Left with little choice we must follow them where they lead,
As they play upon our needs, and work within our deepest fear.
They slowly tear down our will to build up a lasting resolve,
Lift up our spirits to new heights, give us strength to believe,
Force the skeptical to question, to become faithful, to evolve,
Into the fabric of our being, their deepest secrets they weave.
When they have diminished our convictions, and left us weak,
They test our loyalty, make quite certain that we are Tru.
Then they set us on a new path, help us find what we seek,
And after a long hard journey, give the faithful their due.
