The Selfish Burden
by Milton Hooper

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

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
