While I was away…….. I was looking for you.

 

I have saved a life or two.

 

I have seen the worst and best in my fellow man.

 

I have cried, despaired, given up, fallen.

 

I have succeeded, conquered, risen.

 

I have loved, hated, and learned to love again.

 

I have been deceived, dismissed, disregarded, taken advantage of.

 

I have been emulated, looked up to, my presence sought for.

 

I have made wrong turns, ran out of gas, broken down.

 

I have found shortcuts, better ways, other possibilities.

 

I have destroyed evil, dismantled chaos, eviscerated enemies of the innocent.

 

I have carried burdens, hidden skeletons, dismissed questionable decisions.

 

I have found God, lost God, prayed to God and cursed God.

 

I have traveled where there are no roads, paths or directions.

 

While I was away I realized I was and always have been looking for you.
