What are they....
You don't know me right now, but trust me, I look just like you!
Let me tell you about myself!
I'm a boy, that has brown hair, and blue eyes just like you mommy!
You don't know me but when you figure out who I am, I bet you well be proud and happy!
Today you told daddy about your little tube that appeared a cross after you urinated.
You seemed to be surprised to me!
When you told dad he seemed angry.
I don't think you noticed though.
You said later that night that you enjoyed and loved me so.
I love you too Mommy!
The next day, daddy had a weird smell in his mouth... He punched you.
And he hurt you. I heard your heart that soothed me to sleep, is now beating really fast!
I got scared. You jumped back and put your hands on me to protect me.
I don't like daddy. He is scary. The other day he came up to you and apologized.
I still think he is a bad man. When I grow up, I will make sure no one will hurt you!
Tonight, you didn't talk to me or touch me, or even sing. You usually do,

Morality is Not an Opinion(9/05/2012)Morality is Not an Opinion3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
We may find ourselves in situations in which we have to speak truthfully even though the truth may seem hurtful to someone. I've been increasingly finding myself in that situation the more I walk with God. It's not always so easy to do this, especially when you're the type who is sensitive about other people's feelings and prefers not to hurt anyone.
But you know something? Sometimes the truth doesn't always sound so pleasant. Sometimes it hurts to hear it. This is also a truth in itself that needs to be accepted.
But we can also learn that it is a whole lot better to speak a seemingly hurtful truth than it is to give in with a "nice" and buttered-up lie.
Let me find an analogy:
Broccoli is healthy. Not everybody likes broccoli. In fact, a number of people don't like certain vegetables for that matter (I'm one of them; I can be a picky eater sometimes). But it is proven to be good for your body and will
The Hypocrisy of AtheismI speak purely from my own experiences.The Hypocrisy of Atheism4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
I have atheists complain about my "How I Know God Exists" journal. They tell me they are offended by it. Yet when I do my own research on their profiles, they have journals talking about atheism being the only correct belief.
I have atheists complain about Christian signatures, stamps, and deviations. Yet they have faved or created their own in support of atheism.
I have atheists complain to me, saying they don't like me talking about God and telling them about Him. They don't want to be converted. Yet they also spend their time trying to convince me that atheism is right and I see them talking to others and trying to convert them to atheism.
I have atheists tell me that Christians are rude and mean. Yet I've only had atheists cuss me out, personally insult me, give me condescension, quite literally stalk me around DA, give me links to pornography, and bombard me with vulgar sexual comments.
I cannot count the times atheists complain that Christi

became like the least of His people,
became a servant,
crawled on the floor washing sweaty feet,
touched dirty faces and dead bodies,
loved the unloveable,
obeyed against His will,
died, blessing His killers. -
relax in bed
with a cup of tea,
without a thought for those suffering outside,
avoiding pain, and any discomfort,
dreaming of the things I'd like -
Is this right?
Little FeetA young girl was raped,Little Feet3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
At the age of fifteen,
And became pregnant,
The baby with his genes.
Her mother wasn't happy,
And said are you mad?
She loved this baby,
Although she hated the man.
At eighteen weeks,
She knew the baby was a girl,
But little did she know,
This baby would never see the world.
She was forced to abort,
Kill this little life,
And cried at the thought,
Of its pain and its strife.
A metal fork was inserted,
Broke her legs off,
Her arms and chest,
And her hands had been chopped.
A little baby so small,
To be murdered by a doc,
Ever so cruel,
But he didn't care a lot,
He mashed babies up,
Day after day,
For one reason only,
So the bills will get paid.
That fifteen year old girl,
Had her entire world crashed,
Those little feet ripped just like that,
She stroke its torn head,
And kissed its cheek,
"I'm sorry," she whispered,
As she stroked her little feet.
