Mirror 01
If you’re like I was
you won’t have a clue
how to live up to
your most beautiful you

But you have what it takes and
you won’t build alone
as you discover yourself
you’ll find you
have grown

I had only one block of cheese

so I fed my favorite want.

It came nearer everyday

until it was eventually satisfied.

I was so happy

and proud of myself!

I had finally earned my prize!

What I wanted was achieved,

in my grasp, obtained;

but then I looked around in

complete surprise.

Everyone wasn’t happy.

Their starving wants looked thin,

and I suddenly became aware

of all my other wants within.

The neglected wants were so demanding

that my success felt like a loss!

I wondered, “How can I get what I want and also want

without so great a cost?”
