Staring, searching in the mirror
Where all is seen but nothing’s clear,
Another dismal day comes to an end.
The reflection of my jaded eyes
Tells me I’m anything but wise
And I ask myself, how did I get here again?
Staring on, I almost see
A shadow of what used to be
A heart so full of life and love and dreams.
Broken by the daily grind
Of life, my disillusioned mind
Now falters, much weaker than it seems.
My hot tears burning, blurring my sight,
Deep down, knowing my conscience is right
In self-defense, I wield my pain like a sword.
But there is nowhere else, you see,
To place the blame, except on me
The truth I knew so well I have ignored.
Exchanged for the sake of being free
And no accountability,
I turned my back on You and lost it all.
All that is true and right and good,
The freedom of being understood,
One selfish step became my greatest fall.
So here I am, alone with myself,
Convictions placed neatly upon the shelf,
Denial is such an accommodating friend.
As I follow this path that leads us apart,
The truth we both know is still in my heart…
My means will never justify my end.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
