    he failed because he never believed

    even the infidels have more courage
    more confidence
    and they have no belief in God

    he failed because he would not move

    and to make no decision is to decide
    and to make no steps forward is to stagnate
    and begin a backward slide…
    and he cursed his family name

    he failed because he would not receive

    so his heart, unaccustomed to real love
    repelled its warm sensations ~
    like a foreign, unwanted thing…

    he failed because he did not obey the Spirit

    he was a scribe…gifted in the art
    but that was long ago
    and as the light grows dim in his eyes

    he will have no one to blame, for in spite
    of all who tried to touch him

    he failed

    Girl...

    [SIZE=huge]...u beez the deepest!:D :D
    I'm feelin' it; I'm lovin' it;
    I'm readin' it (again) :eeek:,
    not, as if, I "failed" to delve
    deep enough the fist time but,
    merely,
    for my own enjoyment...:D :D :D
