Addicted

Like every regular person, We desire normal lives and expressions; It just doesn’t seem like life hands that over to anyone without struggle… So, like opium, We feast on sizeable bits of the word of life; We cannot endure sound teachings like we used to, Who has time for exhaustive studies nowadays anyway…?
