    The Guy In The Mirror

    When the light oer' your path seems to fade for awhile,
    When you find it so hard to go just one more mile,
    And you lose your desire to tender a smile,
    How could life turn out so drear?

    When your job is a burden, you've lost all your zeal,
    Your boss doesn't care one damn bit how you feel,
    Your workload is heavy, you stagger and reel,
    Do you blame it all on your career?

    When you feel you're forgotten, all seems to be lost,
    And the path to success has never been crossed,
    Should you lower your sights `cause you can't meet the cost?
    Your vision should be much more clearer

    When you're not on good terms with your wife, kids and kin,
    And your patience with friends seems to be very thin,
    When the sky seems it's falling, the walls closing in,
    It is time to look in the mirror.

    Are YOU satisfied, with the person you see?
    Have you tried a good father, and husband to be?
    Have you worked at the problems that brought misery?
    Perhaps it's ourselves that we fear.

    Many times our ill feelings are spawned from within,
    Making our lives hard, to bear it and grin,
    That’s when we need to start over again,
    Our goals will seem a lot nearer.

    Our problems aren't caused by an external source,
    We can alter our outlook, without changing course,
    WE need to become the most dominant force,
    Just set your true course and steer,

    We now see a person, that’s taken command,
    The pressure’s diminished, the feeling is grand,
    Your anchors in bedrock and not just in sand,
    And you like the guy in the mirror.

    I like this work, Ron...very well presented and darn sure a good message. I think we need to look in that mirror every morning we rise to meet the day...THAT is the time to see ourselves...everyday...great poem.

    Thanks Benny, for your well spoken words and for taking the time to read and respond to this poem. I need to reexamine my life periodically to see if I am still on track.

    Fabiola,

    It is strange, no matter who we are, where we live, rural, urban, mountains, plains, north, shouth, east or west, we all experience like things and it then requires like solutions to rid ourselves of the demon that plagues us and often we are our own worse enemy. Best to you and thanks for reading and responding. Hey, I see you have but one thread. Let's get on that and do some post. I invite you to read some of my other poems mostly in Emotional romantic and spiritual. Bless you.

    Ron
