Look at the Mirror

Fear looking at the mirror
The lies, the deceptions
Stories that were told
Pain scarred heart
Masked by a smile
Reflecting back
Every line, every crease
Narratives of years past
Face unrecognised
Looks back in redicule
Burrow deep
Trying to remove layers
Clouding the face
Once recognised
Reflecting innocence
Long subdued
Hidden but not lost
A child’s ebullience
Joy unfettered
A happy face
To reflect back
Look at the mirror
Smile and be at peace
Again

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. I love your “mirror” poems. Yes, we are the scars that make up the landscapes of our bodies, hearts and souls. I like that you unmask the facade and show the real inside before the mirror. You need to correct “Looks back in redicule” and write “ridicule” instead. I like the optimistic ending of the poem. Good job!
