The Mirror


The Mirror

The Mirror represents an image,
Not the person you are,
It don’t show what you have been through,
It just shows the scar.

The Mirror represents an image,
It does not show where you have been,
Nor the trouble that was there,
And what you have seen.

The Mirror represents an image,
An appearance it does contain,
Even though it can see some emotions,
It cannot feel your pain.

The Mirror represents an image,
A portrait it will display,
But it does not enclose the worry,
That you go through everyday.

The Mirror represents an image,
It sees reflections on a daily basis,
It cannot see peoples sorrow,
Just their faces.

The Mirror represents an image,
It don’t feel the stress,
It is just a reflection,
Nothing more, nothing less.

    Simple yet beautiful and deep. I really like the third and fourth line. πŸ™‚

  4. That’s a most thought-provoking poem. It got me thinking about the fact that when we look in the mirror, we only ever see our faces in reverse and not as other people see us, so we’re always looking at ourselves in a sort of alternate reality.
