THE GOD IN MY MIRROR

Someone had put up a video talk by Anu Aga of Thermax which I did see and in her closing lines she quoted 2 lines from The Man in the Mirror. I was intrigued enough to go and read the poem for I had not read it before .. though I was familiar with the concept that the god within us sees 
itself in the looking glass.  My 6th sense was aroused and out flowed these words instantly and 
I wrote my version of it ... though I must admit that the original is also a wonderful one.


THE GOD IN MY MIRROR


I won't stop at being queen for a day       
For life gave me much,
For the god in my mirror I know
The soul of my past ...
Existing in my present
Creating my future with me.
Now I'll always get all that I want.

When I go to the mirror to look at myself
I see what this girl has to say
Mostly I smile and sometimes I frown
When things won't go my way.

I let god know ... I'm not happy                              

So ... make my frowns go away
I order imperiously ...
My sunny smile I want to see
Staring right back at me .. 
Happiness counts most in my life.

I'm the one I want to please 
While staring back from the mirror
And I never mind all the rest ..
For I'm the girl I will always please
All the way up to ... eternity.

Friends may come and friends may go
I am a friend to all
I'm with me right to the end of time
And I've passed my most difficult test
As the eyes in my glass is my friend.

I'm in love .. I'm in love
I'm in love ... with the girl in my mirror.
I can look at her straight in the eye
And see a wonderful chum
I didn't fool the world .. down these years
I got pats on the back where I passed
And my final reward
IS ... LOVE OF THE SELF
SO HOW MAY I STRUGGLE FOR PELF ?
FOR I NEVER CHEATED MY GOD IN THE MIRROR.
