My left eye lied to them

Its tear rolled down my cheek

They did not see the strength within

They thought that I was meek

I spoke of past transgressions

Of mine and those who hate

Where are their confessions

I was not too late

They thought that it was pure lament

Yet they could only see

The half of me that still is rent

They missed the part that's free

Today I'm grateful for both sides

I can smile at sins

Glad that He in me abides

My right eye rightly grins
