Written for dVerse
Fire and brimstone
Follow the path of righteousness
Be a saint not a sinner
Be virtuous, be pure
So much pressure for a child
The vision of screaming souls
Fire devoured, nightmares
Opens eyes to hypocrisy
The real sinners masquerading
As virtuous pursuing lust
Beyond their heart
Stealing virtue, coveting
Coffers, so proud of job
Living this gray life
Somewhere in between
Knowing hell may already be here.

That last line is nicely ominous.
Thank you, Frank! 🙂
Yikes! That image is creepy. What put you in this mood? Reminds me of my childhood sitting in church on wood pews, so bored.
And there you have it. I’m still part of the system in name only and am not always enamored with what I observe.
What an absurdity that one could steal virtue. Does anyone actually believe they’ve obtained the real deal if only off the back of another? I agree age enlightens — if we want it to. Some choose to forever play the game of capture the flag up to and including its oppressive and violent versions. Also, what does ‘#amwriting’ mean?
“steal virtue” is a euphemism for raping a minor.
#amwriting is a tag to show that one is: writing.
