Know yourself ..

know yourself and the things you fear 
and you need not to fear all the fights you go through 
to get passed these obstacles in life . 
sometimes its like a roadblock 
where cops pulling out the spikes . 

it's like i driven over these 
making you lose control of yourself . 

you wanna go right but instead you left . 
if only i knew before i was going to end like this 
then i wouldn't have done this theft 
so what's next ... the promise i kept 
had no longer the effect like i wanted to 
so now its time for me to face the things that im goin through 
lord please forgive me for being such a fool 
but i was young and i wanted to break the rules 
and when i watched the news ... 

i had to face the truth 

i never knew myself nor did i knew my fears 
wich made me go into failure .. 

the life i live today got me trapped with no way back 
and now i know ... my future 
but there is some hope that i will find the path 
otherwise this ends with alot of pain 

and a whole lot of tears

    Sometimes we stray from the path laid before us and when we find our way back, we gained vital experience to help us live better on that path, This line was great, "you wanna go right but instead you left"...Raul

    Marco, have faith that you "will find the path." We all make mistakes and have regrets, but the reader can see how genuine your remorse is. Perhaps she'll forgive you. If not, move forward with what you've learned and you'll have more success in your next relationship. It may take time for the pain to heal, but I believe you will get there. God bless you. Very honest, heartfelt write. Nice work! Love, Carolyn
