By; Gary L. S. West
Who I see in the mirror?
I've never seen her face before
I can't explain it, but I fear her
And that's what scares me even more
Can someone tell me, who's this lady?
Such beauty I have never seen
But in her eyes so dark and shady
Dwells a black and dangerous evil sheen
Her ruby lips curve in a smile
But there's no joy upon her face
My heart is racing all the while
And it seems she is ready to give chase
I turn away from her visage
Close my eyes and catch my breath
And yet, I still can see her image
I can feel the icy touch of Death
Could the Devil be a woman?
Or do I see the beast within?
A fate that I would wish on no man
This trap I find myself caught in
This beast within is so alluring
Sweetly persuading me to kill
All the while, it's voice assuring
The way back home is open still
I take a glance over my shoulder
The light of home so slowly fades
Beauty depends on the beholder
But is hid by mirage-bearing shades
There comes a time to every lost soul
And it seems the time's upon me now
When we choose to pay this high toll
Or to lay our every burden down
The woman beckons with a motion
And, though temptation pulls so strong
I can't shake away the notion
That there is something very wrong
I relax, releasing her hand
I turn away and start to stride
Though I cannot yet understand
The peace I start to feel inside
My feet propel me in a dead run
I can't recall what made me roam
I feel upon me now the bright sun
I know that I have returned home
I am looking in the mirror
And I have seen the beast within
I no longer need to fear her
While on this new path I now begin
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
