reflecting

the mirror only speaks lies
even that which it shows which is close to the truth
is exactly backwards from real

a mirror can’t show you what you are really looking for
when you go to look at yourself

it can’t show you how others see you
it can’t show you what others view
it can’t tell you whether you’re being offensive
it can’t warn you not to be you

the mirror only speaks what it sees
and you don’t even see what it speaks
you ignore what it is you aren’t looking for
you deny what cannot be hidden from view

the mirror does not show the worth of a man
the mirror does not show the soul of a man
the mirror does not show the strength within
the mirror does not show the truth in a man
