EmotionsofLife & Mimosa Pudica: Mirror

This time we choose the topic Mirror and also wrote it in ‘Mirror’-style (ABCCBA).
Sometimes you have to challenge each other 😉

Mirror

When you look at your reflection
Eyes sliding down the contour of your body
Absorbing the little imperfections, the flaws
Of which, you know, aging is primarily the cause
So, there is no need to feel inferior or shoddy
It still can be hard to accept another’s affection.

When you see your reflection,
Connecting the dots from every scar,
Tempting you to give up,
To drink from a different cup
Or simply to see yourself as you are;
A beautiful soul welcoming its imperfection.

Maybe you see a different version of you
Begin young and feeling undignified
Bullied throughout life, due to your weight
Or the color of your skin was reason for hate
Inflicted upon you, you withdrawn, even hide
Unable to visualize that important clue

So now we are here to tell you;
Try to see beyond the reflection,
Recognize the truth you do embody,
Since we already see so much more than just a body,
As soon as you understand yourself crated dissection,
You can embrace the mirror and see past the blue.
