Exchanged Places; Misplaced Souls

Mirror, Mirror on the wall
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Mirror, Mirror on the wall,
Like the Mirror sees it all.
It just perceives the physique;
Its sight never goes down deep.
Mirror, Mirror on the wall,
Can you tell what’s fair at all?

Bible, Bible on the floor,
Do we need you anymore?
Bible, Bible on the floor,
Yet the most needed of all.
The Word’s eyes see through the Soul,
Between marrow and the bone.
Mirror, Bible: Bible, Mirror:
Exchanged places,
Misplaced Souls.


We see clearly,
Pimples, zits.
Only rarely,
Prideful sins.


Focus in on what’s without
Focus out on what’s within.

And our judgement is impaired,
And our conscience gone to bed,
For we measure with wrong scales,
Want for more, what’s right, curtails.

We are gazing in our mirrors
And are glancing at GOD’s WORD!
Bible, Mirror: Mirror, Bible;
Exchanging their places,
Misplacing our Souls.

Put your mirror on the floor,
Hang your Bible on the wall.
When you hear the trumpet’s call,
Which would matter most all?
Lay your mirror on the floor,
Fix your Bible to the wall.

Change their places;
Save your Soul.

A good message with nice repetition and an okay flow. It was a little confusing if you were trying to ryhme, but if you weren't than the flow was fine. Overall a good poem. Good job! I hope you'll check out my work too.
