The Mirror Cracked From Side to Side

The loudest noises don’t come from our surroundings

Sometimes they come from within

Jarring you awake

Deafening

Even blinding

And painfully excruciating

The mirror of your self image

The one you thought you were

With immense pride

Asking it who the fairest of all was

And knowing it to be you

Yes, that mirror

Cracks

From side to side

And the shattering glass

Pierces your heart

From where on

It’s a question of choice

To be reborn, rebuilt and live up

To your expectations of yourself

Or to wallow in self pity

Deriving consolation from your misery

Bleeding and festering

I hope when push comes to shove

When you’re shown an actual mirror

You show true fairness to your self

And choose to do the former
