The mirror is my perfection.

It reflects, contradicts, opposes

And reflects, reveals, interposes.

I am; I am not. Two same divided.

It allows me to realize what pride hid:

Mistakes, mess-ups, mull-sided

Denial of surrender, strength not hid.

Pride smiles with a wink

In that perfection I see

As I dance at the brink

With a laugh and a breeze.

Education? Above 4.0 GPA.

Athletics? Varsity of the game.

Social? Friends at every strain.

Ethics? Work till puke.  My way

Is the mirror I see.  It is me.

Yet it isn’t, it is.  I am; I be

Shakespearean poet?

Rather: perfection of pride.

I deny but she knows it.

My reflection is right.
