I spent a few seconds trying to find a stupid quote to post to see your responses but I gave up.

Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
The main idea behind the poem (the reason I got it inked on my body) is that there may be a god out there, but who knows which one is real. I am waiting for the truth to be shown to me. I do not say there couldn't be a god or gods out there, I am saying I don't want to blindly follow a religion that could easily be made up by a person.
