A Mirror I Will Be

A reflection I will be, for today
 I looked into a mirror and much to my surprise,
 what I saw was all deep, deep, inside...
 There it was, all exposed, the inner me

 right down to my very soul alarmed, shocked, and surprised, what
 I saw wasn't really me on the outside
 What have I done ? Where did it go wrong ?
 Why isn't the inner me the same as the outer soul ?

 Then I could see way beyond it isn't just me, but everyone.
 Life is a fairy tale to most for the really don't accept the Holy Ghost
 If all would look within their self, and
 see the person that is there,

 open up your heart, let it out
 don't pretend, just be proud, for the person
 you really are, is just what God wanted
 for he created you as he chose

 Don't fret, or whine, just be proud, life's riches you will surely find
 Now when you look at me, a mirror you will see
 for when you look at me, what you'll see is the inner me
 For I am the mirror of the real me

 To everyone in life who feels they are not special,
 you really are, you see, for God made you that way,
 if you'll only let yourself be...
