The Mirror

A Poem by Don, year unknown

The Mirror

When I look at my neighbor, what do I see?

I see a person looking back at me.

Is the person I see compassionate and kind?

Are these the thoughts that go through my mind?

Do I see anger, loneliness and despair?

Does his life seem empty and full of fear?

Do I see Love, Beauty, and JOY?

Do I feel compassion and I don’t know why?

The thoughts that I have are who I must be…

Because the person I see, is a mirror of me.

Don Perry

  1. Love this one. Don really gets close to the base of all of us. He is so intuitive and talented. Maybe dealing with the public in a positive manner has helped him gain all his insights. If you could compile his works and have them locally published, it would be a million seller I bet.
