Mirrors of The Soul
Eyes are said to be the mirror of the soul
So perhaps those of us, feeling despair,
Could look beyond ourselves and our own soul.
Trying each day to give another such care.
Such care as we would desire.
Not to receive it in return,
But simply to heal another's pain or soothe pain's fire.
Out of a genuine concern.
At first we can pretend we are whole.
But perhaps as time goes on,
While healing others, tending a soul.
We may find our own wounds healing or gone.
Not a perfect cure, I'm sure,
But better than sitting here seeking our own pain.
Our motives not altogether pure,
But perhaps finding forgiveness for pasts not altogether sane.
