At age eight I made a decision,
To watch the solar eclipse without protection,
I did not know I must watch the reflection in the water,
After hours of watching I discovered in horror,
I was unable to see anything in front of me,
The thought I could not see taught me a valuable lesson.
I grew up and made the same blunder,
I turned down a job after a moment’s reflection,
The image in the mirror,
Revealed my misconception,
I must think before I ink was the conclusion.
After moments of introspection,
It became clear,
The need for help was buzzing in my ear,
I badly needed another opinion,
To do what is right was the only consideration.
