There is a picture sitting high up on a shelf
a picture in the background of my future self.
Each time I get a new idea, a new photo takes its place
often times I would even see a different face
with different features, and a different kind of grace.
Before God there was a shadow, hanging over my head
because there was always ghosts saying "we want you dead."
That war I waged, just kept getting worse by the day
and it felt as though my future would never find a way.
Even after I was saved and I had come to Jesus and God
there will still so much of my life that continued in facade.
I sinned every day, I lied and told everyone "I was getting better"
but still deep inside, my heart was living bitter.
It is a long process for healing,
and there are choices to make to stop concealing
the bitter lies, and broken lives, that lie within each heart
It all begins with a single choice, to continue and never stop.
