Stare into it and tell me what you see?
Smile, do you see that smile or can you look beyond those shadows ?
Laugh,do you see that laugh or that evil mocking?
Cry, do you see those tears or your soul wailing?
What is it that you see?
A beautiful face or the ugly soul you dread
What is this obsession?
Is it the pretty face your fond of or the reflection
A reflection which masks the horrors beneath
You see a reflection of yourself
A reflection you have created for years
Years of toiling just for that one reflection
Which makes you believe you are the person you see
Look at it closely, are u happy with that image?
Or happy with the mask that hides your deformities?
Is it the portrait of yourself that you adore
Or that treacherous deceiver?
Possessed you are, by this false demeanor
Embellishing it everyday you look at that reflection
Trying your best to love the image you see
Oh yes, you fooled them all
But your heart knows what lies underneath
Yet again you look at it in disgust
Those beautiful expansive eyes hides the cruelty embracing that soul
Those lips worthy of lust covers the envy within
Yes, wipe that mirror to see a clear reflection
A work of light on that mirror and yourself
Fools are those who crave for a perfect reflection
Fools are those who try to adorn that image
And dive into that pool of mirrors
But love conquers the one who discovers what’s underneath
Peace adores those who know kindness
Will we ever surpass that fear of what the reflection hides or be a slave in its kingdom?
Look beyond what the veil encloses
Look at your soul
Adorn it with love
Preserve its kindness
Fill it with honesty
Make it compassionate
This is your perfect reflection
A reflection perfect for mankind and worthy of admiration.
