Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.


While asking for forgiveness
the Lord said to me
"you will not be forgived
untill you set your memory free."
Not knowing how to respond
or understanding what he had said
the Lord said to me
"go on, look through your head."
so i took a step
way back through time
watching everything i did
and hearing every line.
the things i saw
i could not believe
the things i heard
made me want to leave.
as i got back
from my memory alone
the Lord said to me
"are you ready to go home?"
i nodded my head
as i couldnt believe my eyes
and then the Lord said to me
"i think its time to apologize."


The author's comments:
This is one of my favorite poems. I wrote this when I was not at home and was at a strangers place. I felt alone and thought that the only thing that could help me at the moment would be the Lord.

Loved you once love you still always have always will.~ Theres always a little truth behind every "just kidding" a little knowledge behind every " i don't know"~ a little emotion behind every " i don"t care"~ And a little pain behind every "I'm Okay".

im a big fan of your work!
