I see you standing there
Basking in the accolade of the masses
As they stare at you through
The rose colored glasses they wear
That blind them to
What is the real you.
I hear the words, oh so fair
Calling them there full of hopes
And dreams...but they are merely schemes
Cleverly concealed platitudes
Falsely woven attitudes
Giving no latitude to what others may say
But me??
I refuse to wear glasses, I see what is true
My eyes see the real you
And know that your preening
And posturing pose
Brands you as foes to those
Who would seek a far better truth
But I have no proof...
Only the clarity of the mirror that shows
If I had sold my soul
I could have been you,
Done all that you do
With only the loss of myself
My soul left upon a shelf
In the bargain.
But when the day falls
And we all answer the call of Judgement...
You may find it daunting
Your soul was found wanting...
While the Truth shall set ME free...
