403. My mirror

  In the morning
When I look in my mirror
  I see the face of pure aspiration.

  At noon
When I look in my mirror
  I see the face of sad dissatisfaction.

  In the evening
When I look in my mirror
  I see that I am totally lost.

  At night
When I look in my mirror
  I see my broken heart
Replaced by God’s Heart of Determination,
  And my sunken face
Replaced by God’s Perfection-Grace.
