    It hasn't been easy ...

    It's been hell.

    Non-viable as a disentangled fetus.
    Impractical.

    A Calypso giving birth to a condemned soul
    and concealing it
    for six days...
    uncovering it on the Sabbath.

    There's been misery in
    watching the
    "early childhood development"
    of evil grow
    it weighs heavily
    on an entombed mind
    that wants so much to do right.

    Pragmatic .... causes and effects
    that send rotten souls on empty school buses
    to purgatory and
    expecting those very souls to expatiate
    their sins before coming home.

    Concerned with signs and expressions
    propositions and courses of action

    It hasn't been easy~
    It's been hell ....
    raising hell.

    One needn't be reborn if they were born right the first time.

    ~~ Attaining heaven ~~
