What Do You See?

Take a look in the mirror now

And tell me what you see;

Is the person staring back at you

The one you thought it would be?

.

You started out with a clear path

But you got lost along the way;

Drifting further from the righteous track

With every passing day.

.

Your motives, they were good and pure –

Always putting the weaker first;

But you tasted power and wanted more,

An unquenchable thirst.

.

A corrupted soul, consumed by hate,

A vicious hunger you can’t sate.

.

.

Take a look in the mirror now,

Does it truly reflect

The person you thought it would show,

Is it as you’d expect?

.

Your will was strong but vision blurred,

And you never did realise

How people came to fear your sword,

Scared of their own demise.

.

Sinners are rarely able to

See the faults in their actions;

The same is true to say of you,

Unable to see your own wrongs.

.

You thought you were always doing right,

But biased views clouded your sight.

.

.

So take a look in the mirror now,

Don’t be afraid of what you see;

The person staring back at you,

Isn’t who you will always be.

.

There’s always time, always a way,

To set a different course;

Take care of all you do and say,

Don’t be afraid to feel remorse.

.

You once walked the righteous path,

Then somehow went astray;

But you’re strong enough to make it back,

I know you will one day.

.

Let go of the anger, let go of the hate,

It’s your chance to choose a different fate.

.
