"The image is perpetual,
undistorted, unlike your mind
What you see is what is there--
what more do you hope to find?"
But, who you are is made of greater things,
than physical body or tangible skin
The ingredients to be held most dear
are the ones that are found within.
Do not invest your self esteem
in something as fragile as glass
Because glass does shatter,
and its broken reflections quickly pass.
If you wish to view your beauty,
look to the ones you love
and the hearts you've touched,
for they are much more steadfast
than a mirror.
