As I walk by,

Here Lies

This old, broken guy

That I must say

Good-bye to...

This boy

That played with toys

This infant

With a lack of a mind's eye

As I walk by...

Wait...that's me!!!

Do I recognize this kid

That wanted to be grown

So bad

When grown situations

occured,

He hid?

Here lies

This corpse full of lies

This deceiver

This underachiever, thief

Of not just immaterial things

Patience

Time

Sanity

Serenity

Happiness

Were of signifigance that could never be recovered

He was a luster

That never loved

That cheating

Double-dealing

Son of a gun

Here lies

This tike

That lies here

That always spoke death

Instead of life

Truth be told

He was destined to die

To take on a new life

Here lies

This child

That has literally died

And a new man has been baptised

In the waters

Of the Holy Spirit

This man

That has put aside

Petty differences

This man

That has the overwhelmingly

Common sense

To use the very same sense

That God blessed him with

This man

That can stand on his own

Two

That combined with his spouse

That makes them One

So 1+1=1...

This man

That didn't run from responsibilities

When times were hard

This man

Took it all on

With no complaining and disregard to the naysayers

This man

That is a shining light

Of an Example

So much so

That that light

Made the darkest

corner illuinate brightly.

As I look at myself

I see the shell of myself

That I used to be

I look at him

Just for him to look at me

And as he looks at me

I turn and walk away

Never to look back

At the person I used to portray

As I start the walk on my new pathway

Moving forward.
