I don't know why they have to make God so complicated,
all those rules, mysteries, miracles.
They say God talks to prophets
but I'm not impressed.
God talks to me all the time
whispering in my ear.
Sometimes praising, sometime pointing out the error of my ways.
but always at the end of the day,
he comes to bless me
and this is what he has to say.
"You're a slow learner, but it's OK.
Tomorrow, with my help,
Maybe, you'll do better."
