    A Letter To God

    Dear God,I am a sinner, but I don't wanna tell you what's obvious. I've been a very good girl--obedient, kind, respectful, humble, and I don't follow the crowd. I've been this way for years, but ever since I was a child, all of these terrible things were happening to me. My...

    I'm Finding It Really Difficult
