When we look in the mirror, what do we see? Do we see who we really are behind the eyes?
You know you’re not the perfect soul, you know you’re a hypocrite. You’re not the perfect son, you’re not the innocent daughter.
You hurt people, whether you admit it or not. People have felt pain by your hands.
You do things you should not. You lie and you cheat. Why try when you can get away with so much more by using people.
Do you see yourself when you look in the mirror? Do you see all you really are? Do you see your flaws, your good side?
But yet, even when we see our flaws, we fight for the good fight. We stand against those who have given up.
We rise against those who are blind to the sun, we stand up for those who have sight, we pray for the ones who have yet to find it.
Look in the mirror.
Do you see yourself?
Do you want to save what’s left?
Though perfect we are not, we can always strive for it.
“Perfection consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.”
– Angelique Arnauld (1591-1661)
