Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Image I see
 
I used to look in the mirror
And all I could see
Was what I believed
Was wrong about me.

If we don't like the person
Who lives in the mirror
Then it is we who must change
The image we see.

Now
Looking back
Through life's looking glass
I see

When I look into the mirror
She looks back at me
Smiling

I see the glow on her face
I see the stars in her eyes
I see hope that is still alive.

She stands tall in the mirror's frame
She has no shame
She has no blame
She has no sorrow

Her hair is brown
Sprinkled with gray
Lines on her face
Mark experiences trail

This woman in the mirror
Is she who lives within
Life knocks her down
She gets up and tries again.

This person in the mirror
Who gazes back at me
Reveals God's love

For me.



Author Notes

I always tell my students, 'If there is only one person in the whole world that has anything nice to say about you -- That person should be you.'

God said, 'To find me you must go within, Go within or go without.' (Conversations With God)
