    Foolish of me to think…
    Foolish to believe…..
    Once in a life time…
    As I look in da mirror of life…
    And it looks back at me,
    and it haunts me every time.
    do I feel this as a poet,
    do I lose myself in rhyme...
    My heart cant take da pain…
    Runnin in circles….
    Tryin to find…whats in
    da mirror for me..
    Is there love for me...
    a minuscule of care..
    or are u playin a game..
    takin a dare?
    As I look in da mirror of life…
    I been burned so many times
    tryin to stay…
    Above ground…
    But it seems I keep drownin…
    Dis mirror dis mirror
    Have da reflection
    Of all da pain I
    Have within….
    As I look in da mirror of life
    And it looks back at me
    with eyes on fire,
    flamin all my desire.
    Meltin my sense
    of worth,
    turnin to ashes...
    what I brought to this earth.
    mirror mirror
    why must it be this way...
    is all I can say....
    As I look in da mirror of life....
    da flame of my tears
    flow...after all these years...
    I search for da answer...
    turnin
    wishin
    yearnin
    tryin to deal with all dis pain
    as i pour out my tears....
    mirror mirror of life.....
    Foolish of me to think…
    Foolish to believe…..
    Once in a life time…
    mirror mirror of life.....

    As I look in da mirror of life,
    and it looks back at me...
    I see a warrior woman,
    full of pride,
    pep in her step,
    spunk in her stride,
    knocked down,
    but not knocked out,
    looking for pure TKO
    in this bout....
    mirror, mirror, of life...

    As I look in da mirror of life
    An it looks back at me
    should i break it...
    or should i let it stand...
    da image of me
    as I start to trust in
    da vision….you take me
    an embrace me in
    for I am da Queen
    of my dreams…
    mirror mirror of life
    u cant knock me down…
    for I am who I am to be
    a strong True Black Queen
    at her best
    mirror mirror of life

    As I look in da mirror of life,
    and it looks back at me..
    I see no transparency,
    Only sincerity,
    Tranquility,
    There's no fear in me,
    from the image I see,
    'cause it's my destiny,
    mirror, mirror, of life

    As I look in da mirror of life
    An it looks back at me
    No regrets
    Tears all gone..
    Full of life
    As my wings
    begin to spread..
    mirror mirror of life
    what I once look for
    I know its inside of me
    As I broke out my pain
    Da love began to flow
    as da strength I found
    makes me who I am
    mirror mirror of life

    As I look in da mirror of life,
    and it looks back at me...
    I may not be the fairest maiden
    in the galaxy,
    but I have so much more
    in my soul to give,
    I may have eight
    more lives to live,
    A mighty tigeress
    has been born,
    no reason to guess,
    nor need to feel torn
    mirror, mirror, of life

    My sisters, U both have truly done a phenomenally exceptional job on this piece.

    Look in that mirror of life but don't let it get U afraid.

    Meet the images reflected head on.

    This was really nice, I likes, I likes.
