Putting Everything Into Perspective


My past has haunted me

Came back to kill my joy of life

Memories and flashbacks killing me at times

But my heart hungers for life...like never before

My soul hungers for the unknown

I use to seek for salvation...it was always within my grasp

Its in one simple word...Forgive

How simple and easy is that

I face the unknown at what lays ahead of me

The road doesn't seam to be rocky as it use to be

The flash's and nightmares live on

But I now can handle anything that comes my way

I refuse to drown in my own misery and depression

I am no longer that person I use to be

Its amazing how things can be...if you simply forgive

Not just saying it...but believing it with ever fiber of your being

Actually accepting in your heart and your soul forgiveness of past sins and deeds

And when you get to this point in your life

When you feel you no longer need to relive the past to help you heal

You realize with knowing in your heart that you are great in what God has given you

You are who you should be...The Worlds Greatest

Its there inside of you...just believe in you

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
