Look at me deep in my eyes, until you feel the
depth of my soul.
Til you see the transparency of my heart, and
you discover the -me, untold.
The part of me that I once had to hide. So
ashamed of those secrets and sins,
Until a stronger me had to bring them to light.
No matter the price.
They had to die, so I could LIVE.
Who am I? Nights I’ve cried, trying to find.
The -me I know, or who my actions defined.
I knew who I was, but situations made me
Knew what to say, though through fear
Scared young boy, trying to look perfect.
Searching for attention, inside hurting.
I’ve learned you’ll make a lot wrong decisions
until you find your purpose.
Had to take the filter off “my” truths, to reveal
Weight lifted off my spirit, but the truth
destroyed my life.
Then the Truth gave me LIFE.
With purpose, peace, and a foundation of
I thank God for keeping me, He renewed my
Now I’m quicker to forgive; I know how much
it means to be forgiven.
Im quicker to love, wiser and confident in my
No filter on the truth, because it IS what it is.
Even when its ugly, it can bring out the beauty
Because filters just deceive, they are the part
that people see.
What is really underneath?
I took the filter off and I gave ME. Imperfect,
But honestly, it was honesty.
And the truth, certainly, set me free
