That Man

I am that man
Who's lived this life since it began
I am that man and I find it's true
That I'm responsible for what I do.

I am said man
The sum of my choices to God's plan
That manifests both lows and highs
Revealing there both truth and lies.

It is I indeed
Rest assured that it is in fact me
Whose path might sometimes take
The more scenic route by mistake.

I am that one
With many battles both lost and won
And, I know that I will lose one more
That day I stand before death's door.

I am the one
Who has to face the things I've done.
I am the one who will one day stand
Before my Maker by holy demand.

So, I am he
With no one else to blame but me
I hope that when I make that stand
I'm not ashamed to be that man.

                         Timothy I. Brumley

    Your words on accountability are profound and wise. We sometimes throw caution to the wind and pay the price. Can I make a suggestion to your wonderful poem? Third stanza: use the second line as the first and then the second line could say: With eyes that sometimes never see" Hope I'm not being offensive but we share our ideas so well and I appreciate yours Love, Elizabeth

    That is a nice line, but then my rhyme scheme would alternate instead of coupling like it does now.
