Aware

I look straight in the mirror
Getting ready for the day
Hope I look identical
To what the image says

I get all straight and handsome
I comb my hair out right
Shaved and clean and ready
To get out in the light

One thing I can’t quite fix up
While standing in that place
Is attitude that I will bring
Into this bright new day

That needs to start beforehand
While on my knees in prayer
Asking God to make this day
Be one that I’m aware

Aware of hurting all around
Aware of needs I see
Aware that people need a smile
They need a friend from me

Though I may look all perfect
On the outside to the world
I need to make sure inside
I am walking in the Word
