Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.
I held up the mirror before me one day
To understand what it might have to say
To see me hurtling through life as though
I were a river that needed to flow..
Propelled by a needless sense of urgency
Treating time like valuable currency..
The reflection that my mirror revealed
Brought out the demons I had concealed
The insecurities that I had buried inside
The anxiety that I had tried to hide
Reappeared in the form of my reflection
There was this time no scope for deflection
Left with no option, alone with my tears
I acknowledged, for the first time in many years
There were problems deep-seated in need
Of being addressed, and resolved, indeed..
That was some moons ago, and now
Every so often myself I allow
To take a hard look at my reflection
Learn some lessons from introspection
Rethink, rejuvenate, re-strategize
Let some evils exorcize..
