Does anyone else hate the editor feature as much as I do? It just never seems to work right.


Ultimately Responsible


 

Iíve been beaten and bruised


Raped and abused


In the years that Iíve walked on this earth


But never have I given up when I cry


Or let go of my own known self-worth


 


Iíve been wrongfully named


Also rightly ashamed


Of some things I have done in my life


But I canít turn back time or make right with rhyme


The ways I have caused others strife


 


Iíve let my spirit soar free


 Not lived life just for me 


For I can grow or stagnate and die



My lessons Iíll learn or wither and burn


In my journey to merge with the sky


 


My lifeís never been boring


Iíve known love and adoring


Iíve known hatred, fear and shame


Through the good and the bad, the happy and sad


Iíve known pride and Iíve taken the blame


 


When I leave this fine land


And naked I stand


Explaining my life and my worth


Iím responsible for the ultimate score


For the time I have spent on this earth

Sherry,
Your words ring truer than true. When we stand before our final judegement, there will be no other there to stand with us, beside us, or for us, we will ultimately stand alone before our God, and it will be there, where we are faced with how we chose to live our lives.
Wonderful message you propose...
