WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.


A Poem by Faith Knoll

In dedication to my best friend

She has a heart of gold
But bitterness made her cold
I never wanted it to be this way
But you don't see the outcome 
Until after all of your mistakes
There's no rewind
Can't go back in time
But if I could, I'd give you a second childhood
I'd do so much different
If I was wise when I was young
Maybe I wouldn't be sitting here, writing past my tear
Maybe we'd be closer, like other sisters
Maybe it's too late to make up
For past mistakes
But I can promise you 
I won't treat you like I used to
I won't make the same mistakes
Bri, my heart aches and breaks 
I was once as venomous to you as a snake
Seven years old, trapped in a war zone
You never should have had to take bullets
Now I'm the one who lays awake 
Waiting for daybreak to ease my heartache

Past regrets suck - but can teach us lessons for today and commit vows to keep tomorrow. The key is - forgiveness! Poetically penned piece of confessions and emotions - good share ... :-)
