Judging Mirrors: a Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017

Judging mirrors all around us

just like those in amusement park

with grotesque images that astound us

judging eyes giving us performance marks.


In each pair we're so different and strange

and yet so prone to trust them as true

as if it's all right for us to rearrange

who we are according to a given cue.


Ever since little with those mirrors all around

we don't seem to know who we really are

before those eyes judge us pound by pound

like an item for sale at a madman's bazaar.


So much time we spent appeasing those eyes

begging for approval, hungry for love

like a bunch of tame and spineless mice

fearing demons below, fearing gods above.


Verdicts of our value sound louder than thunder

and yet they could all be like a clown's jesting

as soon as we start to question and wonder

what it would take to pass a sovereignty testing.
