There's hardly a day gone by that one doesn't look in the mirror in search of perfection. Most times, one doesn't leave the mirror until one is certified with what the mirror shows, this gladdens ones heart, its comes in different sizes and shapes. One can even get a pocket sized mirror just to keep the former "perfection" steady. Why not trust the first judgment and live with it all day?

What if I told you, your beloved mirror held more than just your reflection back from you?

What if I told you, you don't get go see the real you in the mirror?

What if I told you, you've been deceived greatly by your mirror all these while?

What if I told you, you're your own mirror, and you don't need any object whatsoever to see your reflection?


```Err' Morning I wake, I always look forward to seeing your face, cuz in your eye, I see... I see how rough or smooth my night was. How do I know that? You're always by my side I go to wash up myself, You're there. You always got my back You're just like a replica of me. When I smile at you, You smile back Evey word I utter, You give them back to me with the same gesture. Sometimes it's rude, Other times, They were just what I needed, I said; They were just what I needed to make my day. When I'm down, I speak to you, And you listen, But you never say a word Well, I guess all I needed was a listening ear. You complete me, You're just there When I needed a shoulder to lean on, When I needed a pillow to rest my head.


All my life, I thought... I thought I had a friend, I trusted you! With all I had, My heart, My life, I took our relationship to the point... To the point I told you my secrets All of it! I never knew you... You were a deceiver A wolf in sheep skin (wool) Alas! I have come to understand the saying "A leopard can never erase it's spots" I was such a fool, A fool to have believed all you showed me To even think you were a replica of me! And allowed you shower with me. Gosh! You were all over me, like a saint Before I get to the convenience (toilet), You're there already, I thought you were watching out for me, I thought you got me back, Oh "Banicles" (in sponge Bob's voice) You showed me errthing was alright with me, You never told me my heart was full of evil. You deceived me.


Oh! If only... If only you told me, You couldn't feel my emotions, You couldn't see the man from the other side in me. I wish you were open to me, I wish you never kept back anything from me. I wish you were honest, I wish you were never a player, A player of emotions, A foul player, Oh! I've lost what I used to call my friend, My partner, My ....... I've lost you forever Never to look back at you ever again.

OH! MIRROR You've DECEIVED many, You're more than EVIL MIRROR, OH! MIRROR, OH! MIRROR....```
