Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, Mirror, you think you know me.
Showing me like an icy lady.
That’s not how I want to be seen.
Mirror, mirror, treat me like a queen.

Why don’t you compliment my changes?
I’m becoming a lovely lady.
Show my good side sometimes.
I can be warm and friendly at times.

Mirror, Mirror, you think you know me.
Because of all you choose to see.
But you’ve lost your appeal.
Your reflections are unreal.

Images don’t portray personality.
I loved everyone around me.
Though at times I was mean.
I wasn’t as bad as I appeared to be.

Mirror, mirror, you need to see.
The fabulous that’s inside me.
And admit that you didn’t show.
All that others needed to know.

Dear ruthieg…lovely poems, it is said the mirror never lies but does it not? it shows only the physical side of one’s character, only the reflection but it can never show what a person is beneath that external reflection, lovely poem, i too agree with you that the mirror has to admit it didnt reflect your inner beauty, the warmth of your heart, the love you hold in your heart……lovely poem……loved reading it

Ruth your poem is true and thought provoking.
Mirrors on walls always display our outward appearance. It never can reflect what the heart of man is like. We judge others by what we see but our God, our Creator looks into our hearts. His mirror reveals our hypocrisy and pride. Would it not be wise for us to look into His mirror and see our spiritual appearance?

enjoyed reading this! 🙂 liked the last part mainly. this is so true.. God looks at our heart, man looks at the appearance.

@ruthieg33…..very thought provoking poem…..mirror is man created ….inner beauty is God created …so obviously the man created article can’t reflect the God Created features…..don’t look at the mirror….look inside you and you will see your inner beauty…because with in you is the beauty of God!!!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem.

This poem is indeed beautiful. True that we often judge ourselves by the outer look watching into the mirror, next time i will remember your words.

The mirror can be deceptive. True beauty comes from a pliable heart. Lovely poem!

Yes, the mirror cannot show the inner beauty explicitly. But it does implicitly. Stand before the mirror once again. Peep into your eyes. Try to concentrate on the eyeball. Did you see the beauty you are blessed with ? You will if you have, I am sure……

Dear Ruth

Mirror, Mirror, you think you know me.
Because of all you choose to see.
But you’ve lost your appeal.
Your reflections are unreal.
I like that part as many never see the changes in us.. good one
