The mirror~by rldubour


 

 

The mirror

When you view into a mirror, what do you really see?

Most just view it for their looks and for their vanity.

 

I wonder if they made a mirror that would show ones heart and soul.

How long would we stand before it? If our real self were being told.

 

Not just the outside image, for that is just skin deep.

But, how we feel, how we think and the values that we seek.

 

To show us how we treat our loved ones each and every day.

Or how we great a stranger, as we go on our way.

 

To reveal our moral values and respect and kindness too.

To show us what we take for granted, in everything we do.

 

Much like the Christmas Carol and the ghost that did appear.

To show our past and present and of the coming years.

 

I wonder how many people, would really change their ways?

If there was such a mirror, all this could really say.

 

Next time you look into the mirror, try and visualize.

It is our actions and behavior, how others view us from their eyes.

 

When you view into a mirror, just what do you really see?

Most just view it for their looks and for their vanity.

  1. Really great poem about human nature and self love. How many really do see the image of themself the way others see them?

  2. I hope everyone who reads this poem takes a good look at themselves the next time they look in a mirror.

  3. RL, that’s really eye-opening, because who would take the time to look n’ EXAMINE thierselves?
