  • The long Sundays in the church will stay stuck in my mind. Sit here for long hours and pretend to be a good little Christian. God is watching you, be on your best behavior.

    "Don't mock God or religion," they would say. I never quite understood religion and still don't. I feel some things are better left unsaid. As a child I went with the flow of things and this continued into my adulthood. Don't question things just sit back and do as your told. Be a robot and remain silent. No one likes a brat who questions things about our existence that even those who are telling you these things have been to scared to question.

    God hasn't forsaken me but religion, religion has done that and more.
