September 1986


I took the chalk within my hand

to write upon the board

a tale of me through all the years


I wrote upon it all Ive done

and all the things I thought

and stood back and looked


what I wrote in white

now showed up as black

such a load of evil

to be carried by my name

and anchored by it to my death

in shame I wept


I cried to God

He took it all away



At A.O.B.M.  Sunday service by

Ken (the swimmer) from Pembroke


I Took the Chalk Within My Hand
