When I was a child I was taught we are born with a god-shaped hole in our hearts So I tried To fill that hole with all the god I possibly could But still I was empty Alone Hollow. So I built a mask And covered the hole Because what else could a “good Christian girl” do? I desperately hid my emptiness until you. You saw my mask for what it was: A lie to hide my misery. You saw the toxic lie long before me And you opened my eyes to the truth. You were the spark That burned my mask away.
And I am finally free
The void exists in all of us And we all search to fill it We try gods of every form and color and character, and once we realize gods are worthless we try: money, power, drugs, alcohol,
What fills the void we all hold? What? When we are all just lonely animals existing and longing for more.
