    Were you there
    When
    My life began to plummet from the summit of
    Yesterdays of better days
    Were you their when in fear deaths presence
    I requested to-draw near
    Were you their when upon the Saviors name I did call
    Requesting his presence to stop the spiral of my fall
    Were you their when He came to me on my knees
    Lifted me up plotted my course and assured me that
    I had not gone to far and I will never be to grown to be counted as his own

    Will you be their when in the end I shall stand
    In the nudity of my sin
    And give account of the talents that he had placed within
    Can you explain to him about the choices I have made
    But if not
    Do you even have the juice to change or correct my grade

    What I really want to know
    Is if I follow you and meet your approval
    In the end where will I Go

    Please explain it to me once more
    About the power you say you hold?
    Excuse me if I sound foolish
    I didn’t mean to be so bold
    This is just one of those questions
    We ask ourselves
    Once we grow
    Old

    i see i'm the first (of what should be many) to reply to this amazing piece.

    i even ask it today, as i stand,
    a young man
    whole-hearted
    bold, thinkin i'm in
    control when He is behind
    the wheel of fate/hands of time

    just somethin i had to get off right quick.

    b.e.z.

    Deep Piece my brutha!!

    I find myself questioning where will go when it is all said and done with...and it gives me stress at times...but I decided In whatever I do from now on will be a trailblaze for my people to follow nevermind me and where I will be in the after life for I will be alright...It doesn't matter anymore for I have given myself up for the greater cause hoping to change the ways of man while I'm here...making a better place for all to live...I don't worry anymore because the truth is my flesh will die in time but my soul shall live...Hopefully if my Creator sees fit...Thank you for expressing your soul today Poet!!
