True Reality Road Map - My Testimony

Part I - False Reality
I thought the world was my friend, it's all I really knew
It was my reality I would contend, as I viewed it through my TV Tube
It told me what's important and what my goals in life should be
It told me how to look and act, how to get love … get free
The world's message was that happiness could only be found outside of me
In a perfect face and body, in success or a certain way to be

According to the sexy model images, I certainly didn't measure up
There was a lot of work to do, to become that someone who could be loved
I knew in order for another to desire me, I had to be perfect, successful and smart
I knew in order for others to like me, I had to be someone else in my heart
I set out on a course of perfection with the world as my guide
Moving farther and farther from the truth and denying the true me inside

All I did was run to nowhere, my life was bound with chains
I believed the lies; my reality, my heart was filled with pain
Other than the pain, my emotions were buried - I could no longer feel
I had shut out my true self - I didn't know what was real
A couple of goals I had obtained, but they put me deeper in bondage and deeper in pain
For all it did was confirm my insecurity, "They don't love me for me" (for that part was hidden)
They only love what they see

Part II - True Reality Revealed
I started studying this old book inspired by someone special
It told me I was loved and the love was unconditional
It told me that there was a small road that the large road wouldn't see
It said the masses were being lied to and the small road would set me free
It said Love is what connects us all through the light of Christ's Blood Stain
It told of the two realities, Love verses fear and pain

Although there was such a freedom, God's Word did reveal
I was still hiding behind years of deception that my heart still thought was real
I thought I was Christian, but I hadn't died to my own will
I gave all my power to my partner and lived and internal Hell
Then I changed the way I prayed, answers began to show
I finally began to trust…I finally did let go

God was now able to do a work in me
I began telling the truth and the truth it set me free
I began to acknowledge my very low self-worth.
I began revealing secrets I held on to since birth
The more truth I would tell, the more alive I would feel
I found my true-self and true-beauty on the road to being real
