The Mirror and Me

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
