On this note, allow me to sleep and forget this weekend...hell on earth it has been...ed

Other lives…


Did you ever wonder?

If in other lives you did wander,

Maybe I was a Nazi tearing Europe asunder,

Could I have been a part of burying all those Jews the ground under…?


Or was I a Roman conqueror?

Jews and Christians alike I would have enslaved,

Could I have been one of those that was quite depraved,

Or again could I have been the one that was a bit more behaved…


Was I a Spanish conquistador?

Killing Inca’s & Mayans so poor,

Did I destroy a civilization that knew of mankinds past lure?

Without that destruction, could they still now endure…?


This life I am paying back my debt,

For all the bad things I did that I now regret,

Wish I do that I do never find out, in this life let me forget,

All the things I did do in the present life that could my karma upset…

Good write!

Tsk Tsk, Eddie M... why would you assume that you were one of the "bad guys?" After all, if you had been, I doubt that you would have been rewarded with the likes of Rufuz and Rene, or ME, for that matter (grin) in this life. Maybe you were "Karman" Miranda, the dancer with the fruit on her head. OOOOOO La La! Hmmmmmmm? (giggle) katy xox
