TiredYou say you want what's best for meTired by Free-flowing-chaos
But how it it fair when I'm cut off at the knees?
I can't do what I want
what I need
for what I must to do keep things 'fair'
Restriction of an unspoken sort
choking my freedom
something I value beyond all else
It's killing me inside
having to take this, and if I speak?
Oh no, I don't understand
I'm not even trying
Do you know
how many times I have been hurt
how many times I have been cut down
how many times I have had to do this
to cut the pain?
Once, twice, a dozen times
And still trying to figure my own self out
Figure out what I want
what I NEED
but . . . my needs mean nothing, do they?
I hate to hurt people
The guilt plagues my mind for months, years after
But that makes no nevermind, does it?
Because all you see is the mask I put on to hide my pain
Maybe someday I'll believe it
believe that I don't have to hurt
who am I kidding?
I am simply a receptacle for abuse, dictation, direction
I am no more free than anyone else
Is it so wron

Personal Quote: "Yes, you're lovely, now piss off and die."
By the way . . . something every "US is a Christian nation!!" person should know . . .
"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion [quote goes on to proclaim that they have no problem with Muslims]" -GEORGE WASHINGTON. (read the full thing here)
Would you like to argue with your first recognized president?
How about the tenth?
“The United States have adventured upon a great and noble experiment, which is believed to have been hazarded in the absence of all previous precedent — that of total separation of Church and State. No religious establishment by law exists among us. The conscience is left free from all restraint and each is permitted to worship his Maker after his own judgment." -John Adams
What does the Constitution say? Article VI states that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust in the United States.” Then there is the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof … “
Christian apologists have sought to identify the “Creator” who endows everyone with unalienable rights with the revealed, personal God of Moses and Jesus. But a few sentences earlier, the Declaration refers to “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
“The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” - Thomas Jefferson
Be proud of your beliefs, but don't go running around saying that everyone in your country shares it, or demanding that they do.
