I look at the Mirror

I look at the Mirror

A Poem by Azure Montessa (Blue)
"

I see her...

"


I look at the mirror and there I see
a very young woman smiling back at me.
With dark brown eyes, mysterious and deep,
she hides her monsters with secrets to keep.

I look at the mirror and there I see
the flaws on her face in morbid scrutiny.
She believes her lie--she's nothing but a beast,
with her heart intact to stay human at least.

I look at the mirror and there I see
someone with a name but without identity.
She used to be sure, now she's lost in her way
with nowhere to go, not even a place to stay.

I look at the mirror and there I see
the greatest of failures in world history.
With sins and mistakes all piled up so high
will one fervent prayer grant her mercy to die?

I look at the mirror and there I see
a shattered soul in poignant poetry.
Adorned with applause, hailed as divine
I pity the girl in her miserable shrine.

Thank you but I wish you won't have access to such mirror, Dayran.
This is definitely how we usually see ourselves. It's very well written anyway!

Thank you, Julie.
This is the perfect description of how some people see themselves. What we see in the mirror can sometimes be so different from who we are. Great job! :)

True. Thank you for pointing that out, Alanna.
I can relate with this well written piece. The secrecy, identity crisis. It's like one of those poems I wish I would have written but couldn't find the right words but you couldn't have written it any better. Keep it up

Says some other writers here as well. But I wonder...
A great man once said " we are fearfully and wonderfully made" . I cant deny that I have experienced these thought processes but thank God for that Great MAN..
