A mere reflection is in front of me.
In my mirror, outlining
an Image of my outer-being.
Staring through a looking-glass,
I see a reflection from my past.
The person that I used to be
is standing adjacent to me.
The image in the mirror shows
a marred person, I used to know.
It makes me stop to analyze
how I'm perceived in your eyes
What reflections do you see,
when your eyes are directed at me?
What images do I reflect
that only your eyes can detect?
If you became my looking-glass,
will you recall all of my past?
Or will you show a different view
and take me on face value?
Will you reflect my inner-being
that now displays self-esteem?
Or will that reflection remain
an image, eternally stained?
