If i were a mirror this is what i would say

I show your true reflection.

i cannot lie.

I only am able to show you

what others see on the outside.


You look at me everyday.

Blaming me for your imperfections.

Never thinking

your inside is what counts.


Where has this society gone?

Making me just to see

if you look good.

Torturing yourselves day to day

striving to be perfect.


I can't lie.

The way i was made

makes that task impossible.

Yet you say it's my fault.

If humans don't want

to see what's bad

why make me at all?


Look inside your soul.

Not into me.

I don't see past your skin

but you can.


Stop worrying about looks

when you know your inside is beautiful.

Bring out your inner self

and you be be radiating so much beauty

everyone will tell you so.


Moral is

don't look at me.

look inside.

find your inner self

and thats who you should be.

I feel like this poem was calling me out lol. But it's true. Don't blame the mirror, it's just doing what it was made to do. We need to be the ones to see past that, no matter how hard.

Personality > looks.
The mirror doesn't tell us anything about who we are, you're absolutely right.
Good job! =)

The mirror can't lie to you-it's simply an inanimate object where you decide to scream and yell.
Nice piece of work. You, my friend, have gained yourself a like.

I liked it. It reminded me of Broken Mirror allot. But any way. Loved it keep it up and keep burrying your emotions inside your work it truly shows.
