The Blemish Removing Mirror

“… and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

Most mirrors
are all too truthful
revealing every spot,
scar and blemish,
wrinkle and faded hope.

We squint,
cover our eyes
because the truth hurts –
aches our unworthiness.

Wincing, we turn away,
vowing inside
to run and hide
hoping that
the surrounding chaos
will hide us –
make us invisible
from the speculum’s
relentless
and enervating scrutiny.

But then …

“I am” came
and shattered
our refections
and replaced
our haunted image
with his own.
