left abandoned with no choice

before I commit my agreement

they brutally choked my voice

endorsing views crudely opponent;

conflict of faiths often transgresses reason

listening to heart not head goes saying

embroiled with moral wanton

all busy in pursuits demeaning;

free us from darkness, humanity crying

believers forsaken all resentment

fanatics bear conscience dissipating

only blessed souls precede entrapment.
