    When we are lost and cannot find our way
    And seek some help, some balance for ourselves
    We muster strength and face another day
    Go in our storehouse rearrange our shelves

    The mirror gives us back what to it comes
    Without opinion just what's in its view
    One lacking words to music often hums
    Or tries to say what they think won't hurt you

    But mirrors give back only what they see
    They don't attempt to please us as we look
    This quality we need, both you and me
    Sometimes to help us get off of the hook

    And see ourselves exactly as we stand
    So as to move and regain our command

    Sometimes it's hard to look at that mirror, but there's something to be said about the truth...laid this out straight to the point.

    very nice piece. Sometimes we avoid the mirror, because we don't like what is reflected back. Sometimes the reflection is too honest. You are right if you want to know the truth look in the mirror and deal with self first.
