Supplication for Peace

Think I

There is a deafening silence that surrounds me that must be filled with the noise in my head

Every word and every action cannot be contained within the confines of my mind

Speak slowly, whisper softly and let me consume the emotions that I dare not display

Lay me down to sleep in arms so gentle and so sweet, Lay me down to sleep so that I may find peace

 

Here in the vacuum of space filled with hate in a valley of ignorance there’s no escape

Everyone talks, few listen and the multitude conspire to reach the entrance to a vault containing illusions prepared for the blind

There they search without rest, without thought and without compassion for treasure that has no meaning and that will never satisfy

Lay me down to sleep that my eyes may find beauty in the darkness, Lay me down to sleep so that I may find peace

 

Where are the angels to hold my hand on a journey fraught with danger, where is God to transport me from the deep

Can’t You see that the candle has nearly faded and that there is no satisfying the insatiable Beast

 

I am wide awake now and my eyes see that which I never wanted to see

Forgive me for my prayers for wisdom without considering the consequences

Forgive me for arrogance and for my lust and for my pride

The anxiety of all that I have endured I can no longer hide nor contain the anguish of all the voices inside

So, Lay me down to sleep in arms so gentle and so sweet, Lay me down to sleep so that I may find peace

Wisdom I

Adiuva me verterem figuram mundi  Thoth II
