The Shattered Mirror

By December 15, 2017blog


The reflection staring back at me
I do not recognize

Silver shards of broken glass
Tell me I am not who I thought I was

The reflection of my life
Never perfect could it be

My fractured image shows the truth
I cannot hide

Fear, shame, inadequacies
Live deep inside

A perfect reflection
In a broken mirror
Blinking at me in all directions

Courage, insight, strength
Hiding deep inside

The fragments of my life
Displayed in thousands of pieces

Only through the shattered mirror
Reflected within each shard
Can I see myself
For who I really am
