We trap God

Photo by @brianphone We trap God,
hang Him
in stained glass,
entrance Him
by organ music
and chorusWe bind Him

Lately I've been exploring the issue of metaphysical prayers.My blog about promos and services of cellphone companies turned out to be very profitable. That one I'll keep up updating.The one about Honduras, in English... I became lazy. It didn&…

I craved to be understood, but you never understood me.I thank you for all the material things you gave me, but material things are not enough.You are a failure as a parent. Instead of words of wisdom you always tried to push your silly ideas in my head, you still keep trying to manipulate me in order to make me think exactly like you do.But I guess the alcohol you drank when you were younger damaged your brain and temper. And I guess you were fucked up by your parents too, as I am by you. It's a pitiful loop of bad causes and effects. Insane people raising insane children, 'cause you didn't know how to do better, living in an insane world of greed and violence. Being out of touch with reality, out of fashion, living …
