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

It touched me, I can tell that much.
I'm unsure if I am religious or not, open to both I guess. I don't want to have to chose between spiritual and scientific if that makes sense.

It also brings up the question that has been on my mind for a while now. I live in a society where negitive things are shovelled onto you, and a few years ago I was drowing under it. Even now I sometimes stil have those moments.

However I've found a solution, which is to let all those negitive thoughs go. Let go of my anger to those people who irk me for the sake of happiness.

So my question is simple.
Is it alright to forget the bad, for the sake of happiness? Is it alright to ignore everything that makes me worry, and fear for the future for the sake of keeping my head above the surface?

Global warming, government, grades, family. There are so many things piling up in my life and it is hard enough to adress my own issues without having to worry about others. And I do, I can't help it. I feel for every person who has something bad happening in their life.

But no one else seems to care. Cutting down on my usage of power and water, family starts to use more. Study hard for the test, get lower grades then when I hadn't studied. Family grieving over loss of family. Family not understanding what I wish to do with my life.

It is enough to make me want to scream. I can't handle it all at once, I can't solve every problem. I have no solution.

But is it allowed, to ignore everything that I can't change and focus on what I can?
ARGH, why does my mind have to come up with such hard questions?

nahtanojmal responds:

I think choosing to be spiritual or scientific is like having to chose which side of my brain I'm allowed to use. You need both.

Yes, if you want temporal happiness that will fade as the bad arises...

Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

"Look to God, not yourself.
Because He is our only real foundation in this life."

If you do not regard God you will have to deal with these things by ignoring them or by false hope.

Thank you for your comment ;)

i'll admit it got to me.

I clap for you. Though I am, admittedly, not religious, I do believe in the ideas that you portray. That, society, and its ideals are capable of being, and often are, WRONG. I believe people must find their own path, based on their own happiness, and learn to live a life of their own. Or I'm just crazy and you didn't mean to say any of those things. Either way, good show old boy.

nahtanojmal responds:

Society may be wrong in some areas but mainly I mean to point to the fact that we could be the best possible person, regarded highly by everyone around us, but still have it all taken from us by death. What does living mean to me if I will not keep any of it?

Thanks for commenting ;D
sorry it took soooo long

His love will not change you. Only you can change yourself but religion gives you a reason to.

nahtanojmal responds:

His love will change some.
The others will sin all the more and reap stricter judgement in the end.

Religion may give people a reason but reasons can be wrong. People need to work out what reasons are correct, logical etc. But why do that when the individual already knows they are right.

Thanks for the review ;)
