Protection Against Evil People by Austin Spare [NSFW]

Encountered on the Book of Faces and, again, here.
Strange images of myself did I create,
As I gazed into the seeming pit of others,
Losing myself in the thoughtfulness
Of my unreal self, as humanity saw me.
But alas ! on entering to the consciousness
Of my real being to find fostering
“The all-prevailing woman,”
And I strayed with her, into the path direct.*
“Hail! the Jewel in the Lotus!”
- Austin Spare, Earth: Inferno (1905).
