Look At Me Now!

Look At Me Now! I am “the” star I can spin, like dust in the air . . . I am the leaf, rotten dump in the mud I am the forgotten son, I am that unwanted child Look at me now! I am the sea that swallows your land I am your handicap; I am your shortest hand I am the king who sits above it all I am the slave who waits for the crumbs to fall I am the rich, with riches untold I am the poor, have hunger as a friend I am the righteous, with clean feet and clean hand I am the sinner, covered with splattered blood Look at me now! I am the sunshine, I am the rain I am the pleasure, I am the pain I am the joy, I am covered with smiles I am the sorrow; I am your midnight tears I am your dancing feet; I am your signature beat I am your fear; I am your bloody sweat I am you, I am me I am us, I am he I am them, I am she But don’t look at me now , in me you find no good I am not me, with Christ I am dead Look at me through the blood Look at me through Christ,
