Moving cautiously

Careful to avoid

The man in the mirror-

That was his greatest fear

That he would face this man

And all would become clear

Avoiding people whose faces were mirrors

Clinging only- to opaque visitors

Hoping to avoid seeing his own heart

Seeing his own darkness

Surely would tear him apart

Dreading the eternal mirror-

Life’s ultimate goal

God’s own mirror

That reflects our souls
