If the sky were to suddenly open up, there would be no law, there would be no rule. There would only be you and your memories. - donnie darko, 2001

I am who I was
I am who I am
I did what I did
I tried all I can
From ashes to ashes
From ashes to dust
From love to hearts
And tears of lust
Caused by unknown conscious
Marked on wrongful purpose
From my perspective
To your purpose on fault
Injurded accidents
Made up lipstick
Forgetful finger prints
And tattered endings
From ashes to ashes
From ashes to dust
From dirt to home
To where we belong...

"Marked on Wrongful Purpose" is a GREAT line. I would say that Honestly you should cut the first four lines and the last line. They don't really add that much to the unity of the poem. This has good imagery, though! Mind checking out my work and telling me what you think?
