How Mirrors Work

A prod and no ripple.

Funny how mirrors work

to reflect like water,

but reject and cripple

me,  just as my mind has

time and time again.

 

It was me all along,

the jarring torment,

and cruel mockery,

that shook my not so strong

confidence.

 

It was me,

yelling STAND UP

GROW UP

LET YOURSELF BE

the you

you want to see.

 

A prod and no ripple.

Funny how mirrors work

to build like glass,

but stay sturdy and broad,

just as my mind has become

time and time again.

Me
