A stained crystal of an image reflection. I looked to the mirror and found a stranger before me. Maybe it is my past starring at its future but the image are not the same. A personality is defined between both persona.
I look at the man i have become and man i am becoming. The shame of my irresponsible choices had it's spots on my image. I look and found i was no child anymore. The wrinkles of time and age had dawn on me. Innocence and tranquillity were covered in deceit and conceit. The story is not the same.
Is there a mirror for a soul to show that which lies within indeed? Will i find a true expression of myself so i take heed to corrections and reproof?
Maybe because i have found myself in a society where personas are exchangeable as the clothes and embellishments we wear. Here i was lost in the identities of my different acts. What is true of ourselves is lost to what we tell of ourselves to others.
I have tried the words. The say it and become it words. Does it help to lie even when i know what is true. What is true? Now i am lost again. I took the Holy Script and found this... "Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely." "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do." I found freedom when i looked at the MIRROR. It was not made of crystals of precious stones but the very WORD of God. I found Truth as my MIRROR.
