I made a character move.
I felt overwhelmed.
I made something out of nothing.
I gave life to nothingness.
I made him walk and talk.
I taught him to react.
I gave him toys to play.
I gave him a world to enjoy.
I lived with him.
I forced him to live.
I dressed him as a clown.
I ridiculed him.
I sacrificed him to indulge myself.
I killed him.
Killed him to prove my authority over his existence.
This is an Act of God.
He defied me. He survived.
