Man in The Mirror
Once in a while, i’ve always wanted to post my video singing (i have some of them).
But never had courage to do so since i realize that maybe singing is not my talent. I love to sing, but never is beautiful.
But this, i ventured myself because this song has always been my favorite, especially the message in it.
The look is ugly. Moreover the voice.
But through this, which i feel like humiliating myself, i’m hoping that i can spread the message much more wider.
I love what this song says that “if you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself then make a change.” Underline take a look at yourself.
This post is more like a note to myself. I’m not gonna teach anybody to do anything, but this song has always been my inspiration, my guidance, everytime i feel unsatisfied of everything around me, of everything that is not working the way i expected.
I just feel tired seeing even a small thing can trigger a war that kills thousands of our brothers and sisters. I feel useless sometimes only watching the news, drawing and writing things but never really like do anything to really help them.
I’ve heard one proverb says that even the whole ocean is made up of single drops.
So through this ugly video, i’m inviting everyone, each one of us, each single drops of us that forms our world as the ocean, to do just a simple kindness everyday. We are equal. And kindness knows no religion, nor race.
I’ll sing the refrain once again:
I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
I’m asking him to change his way.
And no message could’ve been any clever.
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself
Then make a change.
