The Mirror

Life is like a compact mirror.
When you travel to Heaven's door,
It is where Saint Peter would peek,
To see what you did every week,
To see what you did every day,
To hear everything you did say,
What you thought of every minute
And if you deserve Heaven's heat.
Life may be a mirror so small,
But it is bigger than the mall.
If you know what it might reflect,
You might tell yourself "what the heck"
Now, be nice - do not say "you suck"
Because life can really do suck

Huh? What you mean? And what did you find in the middle and beginning that was gone with the ending? It might help :)
