I looked in the Mirror

I looked in the mirror and I asked myself:

How many people have I touched, How many people have I hurt, how many people have I made smile. What words have I said that has affected another to lift them up or tear them down.

When my name is mentioned do people glow with happiness or enrage with bitterness.                               

Have I helped one in need when they were down, have I made one who was feeling depressed begin to feel hope and be proud.

What do my children think of me? A father who was loving, giving and caring, or just a daddy that gave birth.                                                                                                                                                                                Did Did and Do I bring joy to my wives, both former and current as a husband, a friend, a leader, a lover or do I have a memory of distrust, pain and betrayal.

Who am I to the world, to my city, to my neighborhood, to my friends.  

How many people have I befriended or how many have I made to be my enemies.

I have taught the world to love a little more, or am I just an additional problem of why so many hate. Have I worked to help mankind be united in brotherhood or divided in war.                                               

What do I stand for. What Is my name, my life, my calling and all that I am in the eyes and hearts of everyone around me and even of the Eternal Creator.                                                                                                                                                       If If I died today, what would people say? If I lived tomorrow, what would be my message.                               

As I stand today, I have looked in the mirror and I ask the almighty Yahwah to change my ways to his Ways so that I can be an instrument to be used to make the world a better place, to make people smile a little more, to help heal the sick and loose the chain of oppression from those who suffer in economical, national, cultural and spiritual bondage.

To give hope, To stand up for the weak, the fatherless, the poor and the exploited. 

To stand up against tyranny, injustice, hatred, genocide, crimes against humaniy in any form or manifestation wherever it may be.

 To be a beacon of light to humankind regardless of their religious, spiritual, political, cultural, sectarian or class differences.                                                                                                                                                      I

I too am apart of this world, and when one man, child or woman suffers, I too suffer and die daily and if I seek to live and save my own life, then I must fight to save the lives of others until we all can one day stand up as one human family, create in the Image of the Great Eternal, free.

Should the world ever fall, let me give my shoulder, to hold it up, embrace it and lift it back up again.

 I looked in the mirror and I asked myself these things and i asked Yahwah to bring me up to a level where all the dreams, hopes, songs and visions of those who fought, died, struggled, preached and gave their lives for, would through me become a reality for the sake of whole world.

This is my poem, this my hope, this is my mirror, this is my desire, my heart, my destiny..

I looked in the mirror and judged the person I saw and I prayed that he would be a better person, for you, for me and the entire human race…

I am not a Abraham, Nor am I a Moses, I am not a Yeshua(Jesus),  Muhammed, Ghandi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Mandela  or Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Michael Jackson, Nor am I a Pope, a Imam or a great Bishop. But I am exactly what Yahwah Created me to be, I am Shalomim, a man with a heart and desire to be that person who looked into the Mirror and made a Change…

Reviewed by The Poetess
Such wonderful depth, which can only be written and understood by a long journey into the depths. . .into heart of humanity. I sometimes walk there too and have held all of the world upon my shoulders and grieved for its lack of Love. We are all connected, for sure.
