Who Am I?

This is from the play of one of the most amazing stories ever written, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. In this scene, Jean Valjean is deciding whether to turn himself in for crimes he committed many years back because someone else was mistakenly thought to be him and about to be punished. It captures a familiar struggle we all face as we try to live a good live.

I especially like the part:

“My soul belongs to God, I know
I made that bargain long ago
He gave me hope when hope was gone
He gave me strength to journey on”
