The Full Length Mirror

The full length mirror
reflects
an unattractive image.
A body lost
for lack of willpower.
The powerful mind
behind the image
knows the consequences
of failure
yet cannot seem
to connect freely.
A once
beautiful temple of youth
now drowning
in a sea of self abuse.
Where's
the full length mirror
of illusion?
Is it floating in my mind
denying me the reflection
of truth,
or is the truth
the reflection I see?

If only that mirror could reflect
From within.
A state of mind is shattered
As a glass mirror before us.

The solution lies within as well...
To be at peace with
"Who we are"
On the inside...
The outside will always
Reflect that.

Being at peace
Is the challenge...
To that end, we must strive.....

I agree with Elizabeth in the fact that most people probably think like that. I get that way sometimes so I felt this poem.

I avoid mirrors at all costs! hehehehehe...great poem, Gloria!
I like that bible verse...how does it go...beholding as in a mirror His glory...something like that (I'm lousy at memorizing) Now that is the reflection worth viewing! Our true selves! Great poem, again, Gloria!
