As I Step Back

As I step back and evaluate my life, i notice things that once were hid;
I notice the mean nasty things I'd said, the ugliness of things I did.
I notice that when I was mad at my God, my heart became bitter and cold;
As I step back and look at my life, I watch hardships as they unfold.

Hardships because I chose not to share, the burdons that clung to my back;
Pain and heartache for I chose to blame, God for these visious attacks.
As I step back and look once again, through the eyes of an open heart;
I see that it was all just me, not letting God in my life take part.

    It sounds as though you are back on track with God. Despite the past God does forgive if you ask for it. Beautiful, meaningful and honest piece. Really enjoyed it alot!

    When we are in pain we lash out, angry with all about, when thats gone the true self comes out, god knows our true self no matter the words we scream and shout, love is what it's all about... Andrew 10
