One day, a woman looked into the mirror
And wasn’t pleased with who she saw –
A weak and stressed out young lady
Who tried to desperately cover her flaws.
She wore eyeglasses of pure envy
And an attire of plain desolation
Her words lacked confidence
And she lived her life in pure isolation.
That same day, the presence of God came
And accompanied the woman in the mirror –
God turned her weakness into strength
And a freed her mind from feeling inferior.
God gave her eyeglasses of contentment
And a new attire of pure happiness
Her words became full of wisdom
And she began to live life at its best.
The woman in the mirror is me –
And I am so thankful that God set me free.
