Today, I saw myself in a different light.
I had always seen myself hopeless,
Without reason; never right.
I had always seen myself desperately,
Carelessly wrong; never right.
I had always seen myself lost,
Trapped in the darkness; without light.

Yesterday, I was wrong and hopelessly without reason.
My life had become a tool for others,
Abuse for others; such treason.
My life had become much less than my thoughts,
Carelessly backsliding; such treason.
My life had become my idolatry,
Bleary-eyed in my sight; without reason.

Tomorrow, when my thoughts become sounds, I will hear.
And all that I am would live to serve,
Humility to others; my sight is clear.
And thinking, with reason, of what I deserve,
My punishment, fulfill me; my sight is clear.
And now that I see and can speak what I feel;
Repose and contentment are all that I hear.
