Hope you enjoy the poem, as I certainly do every time I read it.
The Mirror and Me
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?
Reflections of a double-sided me.
One side is everything I ever hope to be.
Yet my greatest problem is staring back at me.
There are times when I rush out to get ahead,
And I find myself leading when I need to be led.
Courage is needed—how can I overcome me?
How can I lead others with authenticity?
I will remember the best and worst in me.
Doing this will keep me growing humbly.
I will seek others out more faithful than me,
And ask for help with my vulnerabilities.
To lead and do right, is my possibility.
To do this, I will visit my mirror regularly
