Now I See

Why do I even bother
No matter what I do
It will just explode
In my face

So why do
Do I keep on trying
To please them
To _____ them
To be someone I'm not

Then I think real hard
And try to imagine
A world where I
Could be completely me

But the image turns to gray
And soon it fades away

Then a new world comes
And it takes over
Showing me
All I could become

Then a hand comes to my face
And I see the eyes of grace

So I take his hand
And he shows me myself
Deeper then
I have ever known

Then he prayed with me
Me kneeling at his feet

Now I know
All that I am made of
And if I fall
He'll be right by my side

So now I'll go
Stretch and pass my limits
And I won't care
What they'll have to say

Cause no matter where I go
I'll never be far from home
And Christ will be right there
By my side
