A Fragment in a Universe

A Fragment in a Universe

A Poem by G!o

I carry your reflections in a thousand small pieces,

I am the memory of every woman who’s stared into her heart

And believed she is beautiful in the many pieces of me

I reflect the silent thoughts of the ones who wished to be-

-as beautiful, as what I would offer when they stare at me

But silent now I sit detailed with the image of you who looks


I carry your reflections in a thousand delicate parts of me,

But I carry no secrets of mine for I am made transparent

I, therefore, offer nothing but honesty to the delicate watcher

Who wishes to see his being unveiled beyond his mind

I cannot speak to the ones who yearn to see beyond what I offer

But silent now I carry detailed images of you who looks


I carry your reflection in a thousand breakable parts of me

I am the one who sees all those who come and go

My story is the faces engraved in thousands of little things

Of the brave and the faint, the coffee lovers and the isolato

I sit here for a moment trapped in eternal reflections

But silent now I am delicate with images of you who looks

Wow! I thought this beautifully captures human existence and how we perceive one another- in fragments. I read a book on self esteem from a library in Los Angeles and it said when people examine each other, oftentimes, the perception is flawed with biases, the environment they grew up in, the environment they are in now, their beliefs, etc. This poem makes me reflect on that idea and also challenges me to be a better person by attempting to see people as they are and remember the bigger picture outside my own world.
