The Mirror Of Your Life... Can You Face It?


We all have a mirror
A mirror that reflects who we are
If we are brave enough
We can see our true self
We can see our soul
We can see who we really are
But we ignore the mirror
We cover it up with lies
We store it away
For we do not want to see the truth
We do not want to know why we are the way we are
It is better to use excuses for our problems
Than to acknowledge the blame rests on our shoulders
The ones who can see themselves in the mirror
Are the ones who change their lives for the better
They see the choices they have made were wrong
They see that their actions in the past
Have created the problems they face today
They see their flaws
They see their true self
The mirror shows them the truth
That others refuse to reveal
The mirror becomes their guide to life
For when they look into the mirror
They know who they are
Can you face yourself in your mirror of life
Or do you fear to find out
Who you really are
Are you afraid that you will not like yourself
Who knows how your life will change
Once you realize who you really are
Once you see your deceit
Do not cover up your mirror
Clean it and place it where you will awaken every morning
You will begin to see your flaws and weaknesses
Then each day becomes a day of revival
You begin to love yourself
You begin to enjoy life
Because you know who you are
And you know the choices you must make to make your life better

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
