people not mirrors

It’s people, not mirrors,

that show us our true sleves.

A man can see his face

by reflection in water,

he can see his heart

in his reactions to others.

Good, bad, ugly, or indifferent,

our reactions to others

show us something about ourselves.

It’s people, not mirrors,

that give us a glimpse

of our invisible heart.
