Mirror Mirror on the Wall


The real true me I fail to see

Of self, there’s not a trace

Mirrors alone reveal to me

The outline of my face


Too oft in life I have believed

What mirrors had to tell

But fellow man is not deceived

Nor are the gates of hell


Where pride will come before a fall

While lies close Heaven’s door

Mirror, mirror upon the wall

Will tell its lies no more


I know the devil’s out to kill

I know his filthy wiles

No longer will I do his will

Behind a mask of smiles


For living pools reflect The Light

Life’s pools within God’s eyes

His Truth revealed in black and white

Has made me spirit wise


My mirror image leaves me cold

With facts no longer sealed

My spirit will the truth unfold

What heart and soul’s revealed


Since now I heed God’s voice inside

I’ve no more need to fear

I’m free of death of foolish pride

God’s Way is crystal clear


I’ll be a light to others now

Who’s secrets wear a veil

Who still before false mirrors bow

Within their self made jail.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
