Her Face in the Mirror

The face in the mirror has a story to tell

Of a place and a time where angels did dwell

And fairies, pink elephants, and bubbles galore

Sprang to the heavens sweeping through her door

The song of a bluebird perched high in a tree

The lyrics of sweetness drift to the sea

Pink clouds, candy cotton, play tag in the sky

And somewhere the sound of a baby’s first cry

The face in the mirror was born long ago

To find her own way, to learn and to grow

To exercise patience, avoid all strife

And fly like an eagle to overcome life

Radiance of stardust doth resonate her song

Freeing her spirit triumphant and strong

Rafters of stars and a butterscotch moon

Mystic light shining reveals a sweet tune

Her face in the mirror a reflection of time

A treasure, a story, of life so sublime

Acceptance and peace come only through giving

The highest of art is the mastery of living.

What Do You See When You Look in the Mirror?

My poem "Her Face in the Mirror" conveys my own personal views on life...especially mine. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Is yours the face of courage? What about perseverance? Maybe you see the glow of kindness or patience. Take a gentle minute to recognize all the obstacles you've overcome. Give yourself credit for taking risks. Love the face in the mirror because it's God's creation.

Allow the past to remain in the past. You are today, a combination of all the choices you have made. We tend to label choices as good or bad and then we label ourselves in the same way. This is a habit that is often learned in childhood when we are told we're a "bad boy" or a "good girl."

We can't undo the past, but we can learn from it. Each new day brings us new opportunities along with a day of new choices that lay before us.

Accept that both the dark and light sides of life have the capacity to nourish us. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi: "My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents, and I lay them both at his feet."
