She came to me one morning, one lonely Sunday morning
I know not how she found me, for in darkness I was walking

To fight and kill their brothers without thought of men or god
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life
But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals
For she the mother of all men had counciled me so wisely that

Have faith and trust in me, she said and filled my heart with life
But when you need me be assured I won't be far away
Thus having spoke she turned away and though I found no words to say
My labor is no easier, but now I know I'm not alone
And if one day she comes to you drink deeply from her words so wise
