I look in a mirror called opinion,
Set by people around me:
Oh, my nose is too big:
My belly is too fat;
I don’t think I’ll look at that!
Then I look in a mirror labeled “deeds:”
Set by my expectations:
I’m so long and skinny;
There are holes in my soul;
This mirror is too weird, so I’ll go.
I look in the mirror known as Riches,
Set by commercials I see:
Oh, I don’t have enough;
I can’t begin to pay;
I will simply walk away.
I discover the mirror of God’s love,
Set here through His precious son:
I can see His likeness
Developing in me;
As He declares, so I’ll be!
