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.
