Mirror Poem by Dechen Doma Sherpa


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the fairest of them all?
'The one who smile to a passing stranger
and shares the joy of life and nature.'


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the lovliest of them all?
'The one who spares her last penny
for a balloon on the begging urchin.'


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the kindest of them all?
'The one who earns for one and feeds many
inviting neighbour to share when he is struggling.'


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the compassionate of them all?
'The one who holds a man's dying hand
Tell him all is forgiven with your broken heart.'


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the prettiest of them all?
'The one sees the beauty of the heart
and witness God's beauty in every shade of life.'


Mirror mirror on the wall
Why do you reflect all but show none?
'Because i show them what they desire to see
The answer they seek lie concealed within.'
