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
