What the heck am I doing on the front page?!



I don't know how many days I have left.
What makes me think I'll even live another hour?
Why even bother living this life only to lose it all.
Chasing after the f****** wind.

I could live to all the good moral standards of my culture
but I'd die just the same as the people with the worst moral standards.
I think I'd be happier being an immoral person, though I know it's a lie.

My heart reeks corruption.
Following my desires I'd never want to work,
never help people,
unless I get something out of it of corse
and just be a blood sucking leech on everyone around me but worse.
Destroying the very things that sustain me.


I don't want to hurt people
but if I don't, I'll hurt myself.
Either way I'm going to cause destruction and death.
So wouldn't it be better for only one person to die than many.

Sure, they'll be sad, but they will find a way to live without me, right?
What am I thinking! they are no different than me!
Then we should all, just, die.



You speek rightly. You do deserve death
You have thought nothing but the evils of your wicked heart since the day of your creation.
You could never be pleasing to God.

But do you think God didn't know that?
You think God made you just to bring you pain?

Know this, you will always have problems in this life
but hear me correctly when I say this statement.

your corruption is your fault.
your corruption is your fault.
Not because you could chose not to be corrupt,
but because you have not given up on yourself.

You run like a mouse on a wheel trying to get away,
no trying to walk on water,
no trying to fly with your arms.
You try and try and try, to do something you can never do.
but you were never meant to.
you need only to seek the one who gives freely.

I know your impatient,
you could be watching tv or doing something to amuse your mind.

But when you realise the truth, that you have nothing,

Look to God, not yourself.
Because He is our only real foundation in this life.
You will go to hell in your own strength.

Please, realise God's love for you,
despite all your corruption
and may His love, change you

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

but hear me correctly when I say this statement.

Passages such as, "but hear me correctly when I say this statement." are unintentionally funny. While it was preachy and verbose, I did connect with certain parts, and the animation was very well done. This thing took a lot of chances which is why it was simultaneously whack/awesome. Props man.

Well thank you :D


Rated 4 / 5 stars

pretty good

even thought I don't believe in god it did make me contemplate the things in my life.

nahtanojmal responds:

Mission accomplished :D
Thanks for reviewing ;D


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Like every other reviewer here

I'm more or less an Atheist, so the ending irked me because I was really enjoying the ....hopelessness as weird as that sounds. But despite tacking religion onto it at the end, I liked it. The animation was great, the art could be improved but the music was great.
The message, like I said, is a bit iffy from my side. Still deserving of attention though

Why, thankyou ;)


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well done, but...

I suppose this would be very uplifting and inspirational if I wasn't and atheist? As one, I find it a bit sad (not trying to insult theists here) that one would need to have belief in God to pull oneself out of depression. Rather, I think that one needs to rely one's own strength to become more content with life. Other than that, the beginning was nice, but (as an atheist) I found the ending quite disappointing. 7/10 because good, but not great, voice acting, and pretty good animation (nice realism, btw).

Please, I'm not trying to say religion is a fundamentally bad thing, I just think there are better ways to overcome depression than thinking that god loves you, or that you have some higher purpose or ability that was given to you by god when you were made.

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

Religion is a horrible thing if it is wrong.
If Christianity is wrong I should be greatly pitied.

Thanks for your honest review ;)
