The Broken Mirror

The Broken Mirror

A Poem by Boldpen
"

Sometimes, the most important lessons are learned through least important things

"
I stood in the room, wounded by time,
sunk in my cries, sunk in my sorrow
struck by deep misery, trembling alone
feeling so hollow, feeling so low

I marked deep, I promised my self
"Will never dare to dream now,
we live in a power driven hell
to this worldly rule, I shall bow."

Then, Myself, I saw in a mirror,
The reaction came, at a fast pace
filled with anger, hate, agitation
I clouted it with a steel case

CRASH!, fell the glittering mirror
A wonder on wall, now in pieces many
A viewer of smile, a witness of tears
Truthful and just, be cloudy or sunny

Ah! That mirror, I loved by heart
I felt, it was like my crushed soul
Broken by world, broken by failure
better be broken than struggling as whole.

But then, again, I saw my face
on shattered shards fell my gaze
A wave of dismay shook my form,
It's just a reflector, nothing to amaze

Then, a sudden realization came,
It's beauty frame, was now gone
deformed, it laid scattered on floor
Yet, the mirror reflected on.

And yet, the mirror reflected on,
Crushed, destroyed but still in task
holding the job, beyond its end
my mind asked my conscience mask

"This lifeless being, never gave up
you at least, have breath and heart
when hanging on, is nature's law
how can you abandon your art?"

So, smiling a painless laugh
I picked the parts of the broken sage
who gave me a lesson, very wise
lesson which never changed with age

And on that day, a moral was earned
a moral on which all lives sing
I was taught, the secret of life
I was fixed by that broken thing.

A great role the mirror plays here, an interesting way to be taught a lesson.
Flows well and the story is easy to follow, I like the echoism, it makes it appear all the more vivid.
Beautiful poem.
