I wonder if the mirrors lie to us
That face we see in front of us
Is it really what we look like
Or just a fictitious character created by our thoughts?
But aren’t our thoughts either polluted or nourished?
Polluted with other people’s criticisms
Or nourished with other people’s adorations
But it is those lingering thoughts which determine whether we’ll flourish
Whether our mind has been polluted or nourished
Whether the mirror tells lies or truths
What remains is nothing but the truth set within us
For the only real mirror is what we silently say to ourselves when no one is watching.–
