"Life's a climb, but the view is great!"


Looking back on the joy and the pain,

Looking back on the things that I have maimed,



Looking back on the fear and the tears,

Looking back and just thinking- Oh dear, oh dear!



Looking back on the good and the bad,

Looking back on the things I could have had,



Looking back with a frown and a sigh,

Looking back knowing I didn't even try.



Now I know that things are different

And I finally found what has been missing,



As the sun sets on each day I will always look back with a smile and say

Those things are gone, and those things have past,

Now I am free, so free at last!

Whatever you've done in your life, God can and will always forgive! You can start fresh, and when you except Christ into your heart, you can be "free so free at last!" Enjoy and PLEASE OH PLEASE COMMENT!!!!

my name is nathan, i write alot, just like so many of the people on this website.  i loved this peice of writing, it brings out emotions and simplifies it, while retaining the stronger feeling, thats very hard to do, keep up the good work and dont stop writing, you will secsseed in whatever you want to if you dont give up!
