Poetry From a Past Life - Part 5

Updated on November 3, 2016

This song was written after I terribly hurt someone by my careless actions, Whether it could be used by the band, i wasn't sure, but I was overwhelmed with pain from my own foolish mistakes. It took minutes to write, probably because of all that was flowing from wounds too deep to see on the surface.needed to be drained.

That being said, I was happy with the way the song turned out, both from a lyric standpoint and a music standpoint. It did not, however, make my wrongs right.


The time has come to go.
The night has turned to day,
And all the things I know
Get lost in what I say.

Still, I hope you can see through me.
I'm not what I seem to be.
And in the aftermath of the glow
The emptiness still shows

The time that's lost to us
Is that which fades away
Into untold years
Never minding what we say.

Still, if you could only see
What I was meant to be,
And if I could only know.
The pain would never grow.

The difference in what might have been
Is the way things really are.
Wisdom, wine, and wealth
Have left an ugly scar.

Still, my feet do move,
And my mind forever goes
To a place I knew
To reap what I must sow.

Still, I look at all my years
Through the stain of all my tears,
And I missed the Master plan,
So I stand with empty hands.

      You may be right, Lawrence. Despite many mistakes in my life, I'm still right where He want me. Thanks for the read and comment, Buddy!

      I think we can miss 'our master plan' but we never miss his!

      I think it's therapeutic too, Dorta. Once in a while, it's good to look at the "ugly" to be able to rejoice over His beauty. Thanks for dropping by!

      These poems from the past are rich with memories and a demonstration of your spiritual, emotional and social growth. Writing these poems make absolute sense.

      Absolutely Blossom,

      It seems the hardest one to forgive sometimes is myself, but if God can forgive me, then who am I not to. Glad you were able to stop by!

      How often we do and say things that we are so sorry for afterwards. They can't be undone and we find it so difficult to forgive ourselves for our own stupidity. What a blessing it is that we have a Heavenly Father who forgives and when we receive that forgiveness we must learn to forgive ourselves, too.

      You're quite welcome, Ruby. I've come to see that the detours are always for our benefit. I try to embrace them as much as possible. Glad you were able to stop by.

      I felt every word you penned so honestly. Sometimes we travel on a road that has no ending. Thank God we find a detour that leads us to happier times. I know, I've traveled that road. Thank you for sharing..
