The Selfish Burden

I take me wherever I go
No place to escape from me
Wherever I go there I am
Can't shut off my thoughts
The selfish image of me
What do I see?
I see a good man
Is that the reality?
I look in the mirror
Can't look me in the eye
Thoughts of pain I have caused
It's not all about me
I brought me with me into this other life
Whispering thoughts of me
What have I become?
Do I even know?
Searching for happiness
At times I think I have found it
Until left alone with me
Can I have a break from me?
Is this the image of God?
Was the pain worth it?
The me inside is a frightened child
Standing in a dark room
Hearing the noises he cannot see
What are they?
Where is my father above?
When will He come?
I stand still in the stillness of my mind
Bearing the burden of me
