I am life and I am death

I am life and I am death
I wonder how much guilt one heart can take
I hear the cries of the souls I have stained
I see the future close at hand
I want to leave the past behind and live for today
I am life and I am death

I pretend to hold it all inside
I feel the love in her eyes
I touched her soul and I finally feel at home
I worry for what the future might hold
I cry when it all becomes too much
I am life and I am death

I understand the pain that is all too real
I say what I believe is truly right
I dream of a better tomorrow
I try to forgive myself for the past
I hope me and her love remains true
I am life and I am death

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
