The Underground Man

By Ramone (pre-birth) - Fall 1997

This was how I felt before I knew Jesus. I felt "underground", like everyone else was outside, living life, enjoying light, but I was trapped down here looking through a crack at them. I could write. I had great ideas. I had philosophy... but it was hard. Part of me felt superior, part of me felt inferior. I wanted to be out, but I was afraid of it, too.

The metaphor and name comes from Dostoevsky's short book, "Notes From Underground".
