Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

A Poem by Ntandoyenkosi Ngcobo

Lights off,
Mirror, Mirror , on the Wall,
Who's the greatest of them all,
For I've been ripped apart, My reflections I truly fear,
Tried but failed many times,
I break,
Each piece amounts sadness and tears,
Caged in low self esteem,
My reflection rejects my personality,
Eyes too bright I can't see myself,
Glued on walls,
No one knows my story, but the whole world waits for my validation,
My complements,
What about my beauty?
I don't even know my face,
But only the people I face,
The originality of my hair is camouflaged thru hairstyles of desperate beauty seekers,

I'm breaking apart,
Crystals falling but still can't touch the ground,
Blood flows thru colourless frames,
For I've tapped my wrists so manu times,
Trying to unsubscribe from life,
I shut my mouth and lock it tight,
Throw the key way out of sight,
But my silence cries,
For I'm not allowed to speak,
Yet for my identity I seek,

Lights off,
Broken mirror on the wall,
Can I win this fight?
For I have yet again missed out on dinner,
Telling myself I've got to keep this figure,
So that it adds figures to the beauty in the exterior,
Every time I look at my image,
It damages my inner spirit,
It is true when they say all that shines isn't glitter,
For me its the broken mirror,

Lights off
Mirror mirror on the wall,
Who am I to stand here and talk,
To you who proves everything right,
While my image is distorted?
For I tell the truth through lies,
Just so I be what you like,
Giving myself wishes and wonders of what it would be like,
To see the world though the eyes of reality,

Wonder what it would be like,
To stand in a large podium and tell people who am I,

For I'm the mirror that's breaking apart
