He Will Give Me Better

I spent countless days counting heads
Of guys who remained nameless in mine
Counting on the opportunity to count memories
Stored away in a bottomless pit…never ending
Until one day He came to add, subtract, multiply
Times eternity the years I had lost in the wilderness
Accepting every trap laid out for me like a lost
Animal wondering aimlessly without food
Starving for satisfaction, attention, and not to mention
Life
Yes life…a carnal mind would say life you have until death
When the Adam nature is gone to rest
But life I craved in the spirit realm…a life full of joys
And here I could trade my sorrow for His peace
Peace of mind, peace of body, peace of soul
And a piece of the kingdom
As I look at my reflection who do I really see?
I saw me shadow boxing a figment of my imagination
Lost soul against eternal life, what was I running from?
The reflection?
Or was it the thought that there was something
Just on the other side of the spectrum better for….me?
Little did i know I would spend chunks of my being discovering
That which was right in front of me all along…be borne into a family that
I never knew.
The reflection I saw died before my very eyes.
I chose life over death, a resurrection of the spirit that laid dormant
In me for so long, held captive by Satan’s plots to destroy me.
I woke up and looked into the mirror to see the reflection before me
She was beautiful and I couldn’t wait to get to know her.
I heard a voice say you deserve better and he will give you better.
I looked around for confirmation of another in my presence
No one was there but she and me
Because she…is me.
