HEY, YOU IN THE MIRROR!
(Argaille A. Di Matteo 8/1/20)
Hey, You in the mirror! You woke up this morning.
A new day has called you without any warning!
Have you begun thinking of all there's to do?
Just stop! Wash your face and look back at you!
Hey, You in the mirror! You are God's own child.
Today may turn blustery, or calm, meek and mild.
Will you get sucked into the chaos, confusion,
Or sail the lessons into Day's calm conclusion?
You're gazing at Who is your Very Best Friend.
Yes, You in the mirror! Now, smile, begin
To celebrate the "original" that you truly are.
God made you a miracle, just like the stars!
Look into those eyes you see looking back at you.
Appreciate who you are with a fresh new view.
As you brush your teeth and rinse out with water,
Be thankful, for yours is the Great Divine Father
Who loves you, sustains you, believes in you always,
Supports you, uplifts you in dark nights and bright days.
We are our own obstacles to all our successes,
Whenever we down ourselves, while God always blesses
Our lives, past and present, and future as well.
So look in the mirror, smile, say "Gee, You're swell!
"Whatever you have to do, wherever you go,
I've got your back, Friend, just be still and know!"
Though uncertainty, confusion, and chaos may abound,
God-Spirit-Creator flows through, in, around
To lift you in Faith to new ways of seeing,
Transforming your life into new ways of being.
So, if you're allowing yourself to be stressing,
Hey, You in the mirror, stop, thank God for blessings
Already surrounding you and on their way.
Now brush your hair, say "Bye VBF(Very Best Friend)!" Get into your day!
