Soul In The Mirror - Poem by Mahfooz Ali
Take a look in the mirror
and see a beautiful person looking back;
Without focusing on the outer appearance
but on, what's hidden beyond the skin.
Realizing, how silly you have been before
for hating the way that you looked;
You were wrong for feeling that way
because you were not accepting what God made.
You're his child, no matter how you look
whether short, tall, fat or skinny;
The mirror can only see outer image
and cannot reveal your soul.
Some people, dwell on their outwardly beauty
and it's an awful sin to be vain;
The outside looks can be deceiving
and may not be as good as it looks.
Next time, when standing before the mirror
don't dawdle by primping with the reflection;
Try to look deeper inside oneself
for the beauty of thy heart and soul.
