Mirror and its reflection

Mirror and its reflection

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

Reflections are memories of a soul to behold

"
MIRROR AND ITS REFLECTION
My scattered self, I see, in a crystal mirror,
Reflecting the only emotions I want to show,
Noticing the face on which it appears,
Taken aback by the emotions, hidden from the glow.
When I smile it acts like me, it knows me so well, 
I reflect myself, it gives me hope like a story untold,
My reflection cried along, it was there when I yelled.
Reflections are memories of a soul to behold.
They are always there for us, even when we are alone
Only if one finds to admire the values in oneself
A mirror reflects the treasures for which it shone.
That treasure is not gold or silver, it is yourself
Broken down by unaccomplished dreams,
Hiding my own eyes filled with silent tears
Patience was measured in my heart with screams
Only because I want to, mirror hid my emotions and fears.
Now I see a smiling face, trying hard to hide what I actually feel,
Fed up with all the false hope and unknown destiny,
I am lost in my own world where everything is unreal,
Maybe that's why I reflect the true self because I want to be lost in ecstasy.
