When you look in the mirror
Do you like what you see?
Not talking appearances here
This isn’t about vanity
I’m asking you can you look yourself in the eye?
Knowing what you have done?
Just because nobody found out
Doesn’t mean that you have won
For you have to live with it every day
Your conscience ringing that bell
Incessantly til it just won’t go away
Thus your life is a living hell
Is your reflection
Like the portrait of Grey?
Rotting and deteriorating from within?
Does it get uglier
With every passing day?
Each and every time you sin?
Depicting you as you really are
When examined from the inside out?
For that’s where it counts and where lies the truth
Not in the lipstick you wear on your mouth
That mask you wear is a disguise
A painting that hides the cracks
A flimsy cover for secrets and lies
Until karma you in the face smacks
For heed these words
It all comes around
And one day there’ll be nowhere to run
So make hay now
While the sun shines
Until justice to you is done.
