With unbridled spring-water attitudes
Flowing with fires of charity

    I love how you did this, ideal to a certain degree, using plenty 'metaphors' and comparisons, yet so simple that an idiot could read it, but still appealing to the more sophisticated eye, sorry for being so blunt, but good write, and somehow on a nearly cliche topic.... (Report) Reply

    The tower would be a great idea. I have the impression we prefer destroying rather than building towers. Besides, the number of towerless people tends to infinite.... We prefer to believe we have towers. Towerless of the world, unite! ! ! (Report) Reply
