When I look in the mirror
I see a shy person
I see a big wall
Every thing in site is larger than me
I feel frightened and worried when to speak or move
I am like a mouse in a hole trying to hide from people and the world

When I look into my mind
I see courage rising like the moon above the clouds
I see fear fading, opening clearer paths
I feel I can be braver than a lion
But I am like a mouse taking its first step into bravery

When I look into my heart
I see courage climbing higher than a vine on a tall tree
I see my walls crack and start to crumb down
I am feeling courageous and happier
I feel like a mouse turning into a great beastly lion
When I reflect, I have come a long way
Like a mouse who braves the day at any time
