I Looked in the Mirror Today

I looked in the mirror today
and saw all my thoughts
they were irrational somewhat
painful, negative and suppressed

I looked in the mirror today
and saw I was growing older
and saw I felt hopeless and sad
and frightened about the coming future

I looked in the mirror today
and saw I didn't like myself
I was feeling depressed and anxious
about all the suffering in my life

I looked in the mirror today
and saw my recovery of life
and then forgiveness from God
of all my minor sins

I looked in the mirror today
and saw my reflection
a dark nervous woman
with love and caring to give

No need to judge myself
or feel down and helpless
just be here now in the moment
I saw no more

I looked in the mirror today
and told myself I was beautiful
It brought me salvation
and hope for rough times ahead

I looked in the mirror today
and saw my own consciousness
and how high it has grown
and what progress I have made
