Afternoon For Eternity

(The first song in the “Pushing Up Daisies” album by Kerry Powers.)

I spent an hour looking into the mirror, wondering how did things go so wrong. I’m not the person I thought I could be, not a person I could be
proud of. How did it come to this? Who do I think I am? I’m not a person
who’s worth of the life I’m living…

I spent an hour looking into the mirror, wondering what should I do? The world isn’t going to sit around and wait for me to come to it. I know I have to leave my dreams behind and say goodbye to all my childish fantasies; but who’s going to help me when the world tries to destroy me for being who I am?

I spent an hour looking into the mirror, knowing that I have to reach out. I need to free myself from the monster that I’ve become, as I could
only be that way for so long. tolerance and acceptance has killed more
people that it has helped. only a life in God’s hands can set me free…

And how could I reject the gift of freedom that God is offering me? to reject that gift is to be a fool. I say God, please set me free from the monster the world wants me to be. make me want to be a better person, one who will glorify your name…

I spent an hour looking into the mirror, seeing the person I was meant to be. If only they could see me as I see myself, that would be better than the
labels they put on me. Or maybe I should stop looking into the mirror,
for the mirror has poisoned the heart. I need to see others instead of just myself, I need to see them through my eyes; they’re not as bad as my mind wants me to think…
