    Skeptic Who Wants To Believe

    I'm 19 years old and I was raised in a non-religious family. My dad used to say "I go to a round church where the devil can't corner me." That was the most we ever talked about religion. I've always considered myself agnostic as I was skeptical about God. I have always been...

    Sometimes, Things Are So Hopeless.
