truth....def like the last couple lines....not seeking your own reflection...its like the crow that loooks in the water and seeing itself gets greedy and when reaches drops its treasures into its own reflection....
I like the idea that we should not seek our own reflection too much but rather focus on life!
Ideally a mirror should reflect truth and sincerity....but also true that one should not be caught in one's reflection so strongly that one does not live one's life......
Ooh we are clapping our hands! Portals..mirrors..steps and water..perfect!
'lest it trap a dying soul, ~ haunting thought....so there the answer in the question: yes, ' life should be your ultimate goal' to help the soul to express itself.
So beautiful- it could be a portal.Love the words here.
