God is tryna tell me something
I have more questions Than answers.  Doubts Left to fester into ulcers of disbelief by Priests who Brand me an Apostate.  God, If you are there, I still have questions.  My Prayers Unanswered Echo Eternally In vacuums of doubt.  We don't speak the same lang...

For you my Arrogant Friend
It can’t be that you are that callous. That I took you in and you defame my family name, You worthless fool with no manners, Why didn’t I kick you between the legs when I had the chance? It can’t be that you have no shame, That you ate my food and took a sh...
