Oh mighty one, for I am the small and meek.
Your presence is an important factor in my decision.
For what reason do you test my inner self being?
Tis a test that will take a lifetime to complete...
Maybe Karma is inhaling abundant pieces of my spirit.
Oh mighty one, I wish to learn why am I being punished?
Have I wronged to the extent of this imprisonment?
Please give me the strength to not only understand...
My future may be dismal yet transcendently obscure.
Have I the knowledge to control the difference?
I feel shameful yet sublime in my time of need.
Oh mighty one, such torture and suffering I not only see...
Can you reward me the knowledge of your existence?
We are taught it is faith that enhances our knowledge.
Oh mighty one, can such faith have the power to hinder
Outside influences that have tainted my beliefs...
With heavy heart my unforeseen total commitment
Has yet to make an appearance in my turmoil.
Oh mighty one, am I disillusioned by the mighty one?
Time will grant me the peace to my significant ponderings...
