Looking in the mirror a reflection staring back
Opening the door the enemy begins to attack
For he just the image on the outside
Not the beauty or value, or anything else I try to hide
I have heard it said, that mirrors don’t lie
But they do, and they don’t even have to try
What I desire is a mirror, a mirror for my heart
One that shows who I am, who from the start
They also say beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Well, my beauty comes from the Heavenly Soldier
In His eyes I am pleasing and oh, so much more
He sees more than just what reflects from the door
I am cherished and a daughter of the one true King
That is the beauty a mirror in the heart can bring
Finally they say beauty is more than skin deep
A concept that tears me up and makes me weep
For a person to truly see my heart and my soul
That my friend is love, the ultimate goal

Lovely poem, Becky. So much truth in each line…thank you for your words.
“What I desire is a mirror, a mirror for my heart”
You have that, Sweet Friend, in the eyes of those who see you as the beautiful soul that you are. Thank you for sharing these words. Such truth. Such beauty. So YOU. Who is loved more than she realizes just because she is her.
So beautiful, Becky. Your words and poetic way of seeing life is a gift.
Becky, you are clothed in strength and dignity—so precious in the eyes of the Lord!
Deeply beautiful is your heart!
Thank you for sharing it with me!
