Poem - Why Dear Mirror

The poem “Why Dear Mirror” is about the struggle of the outer not matching the inner. This is a condition experienced by a wide range of people, with each situation asking for acceptance that comes with pain.


Why Dear Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall
declare your judgment if you must
liar to my questing soul
this looking glass I’ll avoid
if convenience would permit
sadly this is not allowed

I’d wear a girdle to assure
the curves align where they should
if only this could occur
wishing something I can’t see
the echo missing purity
of what’s inside that I believe

the reflection does not mislead
yielding what others view
except to state what does not please
an aping of the outer sheaf
foreign to my inner eye
why dear mirror must you deceive?
