My Mirror

As I stare into a mirror

A stranger I see

She looks strong and confident

I know it’s not me

 

I look a little closer

Into her deep brown eyes

Something is familiar and

Strikes a chord down inside

 

Is she a friend

Or is she pretend

It’s hard to tell

So I look again

 

As I watch her closely

I begin to pray

May God give me the power

To look away

 

But I cannot divide

My eyes from the mirror

God calls me towards it

He knows I’m a believer

 

I reach out to the reflection

She grabs my hand

We begin to walk

Like two old friends

 

As our bond grows stronger

The mirror melts away

Suddenly I know

We are one in the same

 

I realize who she is

A piece of myself

I thought she was lost

Among the self-doubt

 

As we move on forward

Towards the door

I look to my side

She is there no more

 

Now that we are one

I can ride the waves

Holding tight to the Light

Letting God guide my way

 

Becoming friends with myself

Is a long and hard battle

But I know I will heal

My faith won’t unravel

 

There are so many times

God has carried me through

But I can live a life worth living

Because He gave me the tools
