My grandfather used to say that a "smart" man learns from his mistakes but a "wise" man learns from others mistakes.... the reflection of who we are can be seen in others.

 

           MIRRORED IMAGES

 

 

                    When I look at you I see myself

                        a few short years ago.

 

                    A time when I was lost

                        and so very afraid,

                    the time I started to grow.

 

                    I would fall, I would cry,

                        I would look to the sky and say,

                    "guide me, show me the way".

 

                    The heavens replied,

                        "I'm by your side, be brave,

                    it's just another day!”

 

                    That's what I did

                        and I'm no longer a kid,

                    I'm strong and confident as can be.

 

                    But when I look at you,

                        I understand the fear,

                    because the image I saw, was me!
