This Will Get Better





Written by Grant G


     Easter, a religious time, a time for atonement, celebration and prayers, prayers for a future that's better.

I'm not religious, nether was my dad, yet, my father could cite biblical verse and passages like someone trained and or schooled in the preisthood, because he was, his dad, my grandfather was a religious zealot and every Sunday made my father attend church, dad was also required to read scripture every night at home....This my dad tolerated, until, until he got old enough to say no..

This story is not a slight against religion, my dad was a free spirit, logical, smart and not easily led astray, this of course led to friction between him and his dad....Decades later my dad told me the reasons he rejected religion, he felt too many in the flock were mindless sheep, sheep who were told how to act, how to treat others and even worse, instructed as to how to think... What dear church leader thinks must be copied and strictly adhered to.....For my dad....He and the church parted ways yet verse and scripture remained ingrained..

Dad never told me at the time(I was young) but in thinking back to decades ago, and how he explained religion to me as an adult I know now he struggled early on with his decision to abandon the church..When dad's children(including me) were young he took us(dropped us off) at Sunday school for a mild dabble into religion.....perhaps he was wondering internally if it was himself only that had issues with religion...Dad never disparaged the church to us kids when we were at that tender age, with me, Dad let me attend Sunday School...only in my later years did I put it all together...

I didn't attend Sunday School for long......Dad asked me what I thought about it, Sunday School that is and I answered him honestly..Told him it was silly, boring and not real....Sunday School was quickly replaced with fishing...For me and dad, that was as real(reel) as it gets...

As mentioned above, this story, these thoughts are not a slight against religion, it is however, a slight against mindlessness, a slight against worshiping false idols, a slight against religious zealots who praise pure evil heathens as long as those heathens deliver unto them..

Many have asked why I stopped writing, stopped fighting for what's right, my answer is simple, with the election of Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, leftwing,rightwing governments matter not, there is currently no difference and...Until Donald Trump gets removed from power the world will not get better.

Donald Trump....He is NOT RELIGIOUS at all, not one scintilla of faith lives within him..nothing, yet Trump tells the Christian flock that he is....Donald Trump, the racist, Trump the rapist, adulterer, many times married, Donald Trump who has deliberately bankrupted thousands of small contractors/workers, a conman man through and through...Trump did that because he could, over money, for Donald the Dim, court battles be his name, over 4000 lawsuits...Trump's motto, let them sue and sue and sue some more until they exhaust all their financial resources and settle for pennies on the dollar..

Trump cheated on all his wives and abused 100s more, Donald's crimes cover the entire gambit from financial, personal, family, sexual offenses yet even knowing this "heavy"Christian zealots still support Donald Trump....Why...Because of the 2nd amendment(guns)..indeed, and pro-life/anti-abortion stance...Donald isn't pro-life and he's forced abortion upon a victim or two, and marriage, sacred not be his name...

I mentioned ingrained scripture, particular chapters and verse as to my dad...To this day, Donald Trump when cornered couldn't cite a single passage from the bible..

(check out the below short video, proof positive Trump and Religion are oil & water..meaning they don't mix, and never did)




17,000 proven lies in 3 1/2 years ....bombastic, vengeful, petty, unintelligent when it comes to knowledge but he's deviously sharp when it comes to demented distortion...

Christian flock, not all but huge proportions of the flock overlook his many flaws because they're told to by their religious leaders, even knowing of Trump's many flaws those believers look the other way and refuse to see, hear or acknowledge what they know...

False idols praised as long as they deliver words supporting pro-life and more guns.

Pandemic scourge spreads wildly through earth's billions of inhabitants....mother nature finds a way to reduce population growth run amok, we see it all the time with animals and corralled fish ..it has to, the planet is finite and as for myself personally,...I have no right to tell a woman what she can or can't do with her own body...my only wish is that a lot of thought is put into a woman's decision and that the procedure is as safe as possible..

Restricting woman, owning woman, like cattle....Religion needs a rethink, needs to open up and air out their skeleton filled closets and allow the sun to burn off the virus that's existed in religion for far too long..

Donald Trump will be removed in November and then, with luck, and perhaps with prayer the world will move progressively forward....Call it lessons learned...

This will get better..

Music has always inspired me,......Fuck the Church..Time for science.

and a little inspirational music..

I Beg To Differ (This Will Get Better)


  One day you're gonna wake up from this dream
To find out that your life ain't what it seems
When you feel so lost, that you don't belong
Well I beg to differ
As time goes on this will get better
And you can't go wrong if your will is strong
Enough under pressure
As time goes on this will get better
This will get better
You struggle every day but no one sees
And trouble eats away your self esteem
You're so afraid to face tomorrow
The only thing that waits is sorrow
You can't see the light from behind the curtains
When you feel so lost, that you don't belong
Well I beg to differ
As time goes on this will get better
And you can't go wrong if your will is strong
Enough under pressure
As time goes on this will get better
This will get better
Don't suffer through the dark days
Burn up all the barricades
Turn and face the pain to let it go
No matter what they all say
You can find another way
Never have to battle this alone
Don't suffer through the dark days
Burn up all the barricades
Turn and face the pain to let it go
No matter what they all say
Always be another way
You don't have to battle this alone
When you feel so lost, that you don't belong
Well I beg to differ
As time goes on this will get better
And you can't go wrong if your will is strong
Enough under pressure
As time goes on this will get better
This will get better
This will get better
Don't you surrender
This will get better
This will get better
This will get better
Don't you surrender
This will get better
