I look into the mirror and what do I see? Is the person staring back smiling at me?
Is my soul happy with where I’m at in life? Or am I still battling with things deep inside?
Am I still focused on the opinions of others? But was I really placed on earth to please another?
Do I have love for the person that I am? Or am I waiting on love to define who I am?
If I crack open my heart what would there be? Would there be lessons or regrets lurking at me?
Am I truly satisfied with the person I’ve become? Or should I continue working on becoming that someone?
Am I living right with others and more importantly me? Cause when I stand before God I’ll be the one answering him.
Imagine having your head bashed in at 10 years old and throwing the memory into your stories untold.
How would you feel if that was you being abused? Now tell me whose afraid of the big bad wolf?
Late night running into the darkness of the night, but still too young to try and put up a fight.
And the street became her home for a little while. Living like an adult when she was just a child.
Now can you imagine the pain in that little girls heart? Hoping that somehow her life could restart.
All she had was prayer while begging God “please!” “take away all of this suffering from me.”
But I’m so proud of her and I hope she knows. She didn’t go down the road that they thought she would go.
Because seeing him hanging was a great horror, but that pained little girl turned into a warrior.
He swears that we are meant to be,
But my heart finds his words hard to believe.
Could a man like him love a woman like me?
And look into my soul and beneath the surface see,
My mind. My heart. My genuine affection,
I know my heart can’t withstand any more rejection.
I’ve found someone who isn’t shallow minded,
He’s being unfolded and I’m being unblinded.
But could he love a woman like me,
And fall in love with me endlessly?
I swear my feelings are coated with truth,
Even though I’m only in the prime of my youth.
This thing called my mind fills me up with doubts,
My heart battles with my head and I want to shout,
How could a man like you love a woman like me?
Why did it take me this long to see?
I must’ve fallen quicker than I want to believe,
My heart is as wild as the raging seas.
But now everything is clear to me,
A man like you could never love a woman like me.
I thought with you I could touch the sky,
And all you did was fill me with your lies.
I felt as though I finally found someone,
But you were only searching for some quick fun.
I was dumb enough to believe in you,
Now I’m stuck here feeling like the biggest fool.
Your words are as empty as your hollow heart,
I should have seen through you right from the start.
More than anything I wanted us to be real,
I made the wrong call and I let down my shield.
I don’t understand why you’d make me fall,
Then shut me out like I was nothing at all.
I released my heart from its cage,
But you’re another book and I’ll turn your page.
I thought you were the perfect guy,
But you were just another devil in a disguise.
