Satisfy Your Soul

Satisfy Your Soul

When the world and its religions
Can’t quite satisfy your soul
And the hymns and prayers and chanting
Sound like one droll rigmarole

When the teachers of your spirit
Leave you empty and confused
And your inner voice announces
That the truth has been abused

When your doubts demand reality
Beyond this life’s façade
And all else has failed to save you
Let your conscience be your God.

Beautifully said, but my conscience is no one's God. It is only they're deep still voice. To hear it, we must also be still. To hear it we must also be active.
If you're conscience is you're God, what is you're demon?
