September 28th – The Mirror

The Mirror

I told my father
To take the mirror down
Because I didn’t want it

I lied

I meant
Take it away!
I don’t want it

I can’t stand it

I tell myself
It’s a hurtful liar
It twists my image

I know that’s not true

The mirror shows what’s real
It shows me what it
Nothing more

It’s not its fault I hate the reflection

The mirror isn’t to blame
For my self-loathing
For the image I put in it

But it makes me feel better to say so

So today like any other
I tried to avoid it
But messed up

I looked

And I stopped
And I stared
And I stared

Maybe the mirror can stay
