A mirror image

Darryl Bartlett 1965 (Alabama)

For God so loved the world
He gave us a mirror to see
Our own imperfections
And our own humility

For those without any sin
Are nonexistent at best
For those that cast their stones
Their souls will never rest

Be humble in all you do
Be gracious for you blessings
For the image staring back at you
May teach you a lifelong lesson

Cleanse your heart and soul each day
And the image you will see
Is a image God is proud of
Destined for eternity
