Mirror, Mirror

by Lalita

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall

I look to you for truth

The rest of the world cares not at all

So I'm labeled troubled youth

Mirror, mirror, so cold and clear

Show me what lies inside

Present to me all I fear

So I can escape the lies

Mirror, mirror, with jagged edge

Your glass lies small and sharp

From your challenge I do not hedge

Though you see it as a lark

Mirror, mirror, splashed with red

Cut my hand away

So that these words will not be read

Tomorrow or today
