    The mirror broke into a million pieces
    Pieces big and small, sharp and blunt

    I looked into the broken mirror,a million me
    Who was me,Where could I be

    Each piece was unique, each was a different me
    Yet each was a leaf from the same tree

    The piece at the top was big, I was the king, the despot
    Who enjoyed life,leaving his subjects to suffer and rot

    The piece at the bottom, very small,I was a farmer growing rice
    The farmer who hated the king for all his vice

    Pieces showed me that I was some one else, some where between
    My shades varying from the bloody red to the grassy green

    Life is a big jigsaw puzzle,the mirror showed
    An important lesson taught,in front of the mirror I bowed

    Life is a mixture of times good and bad, happy and sad
    Life is what you are and not what you had

    Life is a woman with charm,a man with wisdom
    A child with innocence, life swings like the pendulum

    Put the pieces together, blunt,sharp,big and small
    Life`s calling, answer her call
