Remember when we rode in the sand?
Our chariots colliding
We ruled the land.

Remember when I got you in trouble?
I thought it was funny
You made father bubble.

Remember when I took off that night?
The truth unfolded
I was coated in fright.

Remember when I questioned my life?
Those words that they spoke
Stuck like a knife.

Remember when I killed that man?
In fear and panic
From you I ran.

I remember when she took me in
While I was consumed
By deadly sin.

I remember when he opened my eyes
And my cries were lifted
To the skies.

I remember when the bush was red
God was there
And he said:

Holy ground you tread upon,
Take off your shoes and listen.
It is I, your God, deliver them,
Make their free eyes glisten.


So here I am confronting you
My brother,
Please stay true.

I only have one single request
With this knowledge
I have been blessed

The innocent suffer under your blow,
Please let it be so,
Let my people go.
Well, this is different for me. :la:
I've been inspired by the movie The Prince Of Egypt By Dreamworks. I absolutely LOVELOVELOVELOVE that movie :heart:

I hope you enjoy! :aww:

This is totally :iconepicbadge1plz::iconepicbadge2plz:! The epic retelling of Moses, as The Prince of Egypt; is expertly and powerfully told, by a true fan! One can almost feel Moses' own heartbeat; as they read this delish reworking of a prophet's tale! WELL DONE!!

You have a wonderful writing-style! One only has to read the first few stanzas, to find that they are instantly drawn into the piece!! :thumbsup:

Be sure to keep up the good work!! :iconyourocksonicplz:

Well that was a good inspiration! One touch of humour, and much sad looking back. Nice story well told, seems to carry a message. Different and good. :santa:
