Although I choose death


Though I chose death.
Instead of heartache and pointless pain.
My love and need for you still remain.
But my pain I could no longer sustain.
Nor would it of stopped you from greiving.
Although I chose death instead of heartache and pain.
I hope my memory it will not stain.
Nor lead to a life of misery.
It was something I had to do.
My love for you all still remain.
For only in you I live again.

My life I lived in vain.
With a load of shit and pain.
So my life I selfslained.

    Be happy you who morn and weep for human wrong and sin
    Comfort shall God give you, his arms to hold there in...

    Like the prophets before you, life thanks you with the sword.
    Rejoice, rejoice and be glad - for great is your reward.

    Amy (and you too Barbara) it sounds like you've been the victims of the sins of this world, but just remember that when God is for you (and He is) , no one can be against you. DGP. (Report) Reply
