A Completed Person

 


 

A Completed Person


 

Religion to scare us,

the Devil to snare us,

God only loves you if you’re good.

 

Original sin,

Do you only believe in

the diamond glint of angel wings?

 

There’s two sides to the coin.

It’s important to join

the nice you,

and the naughty you together.

 

A completed person

makes a better version,

which we all can understand.
