Hello Mirror


People say we look alike
Yesterday I fell, today I spike

But you mirror, why do you weep?
when you know tomorrow I reap

Why is your heart hollering in red pains?
Smile, the future holds our gains

I can see your bleeding eyes
Afflictive cries in sleepless nights
With determination, away your worry flies.

Haunted by the past
In your dreams, memories blast

Fear cooks clouds in your head
Rain drops of terror your nose shed
But Mirror, am here to you shine.

Brighten up,
I see Prof beneath your shame
I see a politician on top of the game
I see an engineer behind your chest
I see a writer and poet below your breast

Am happy, mirror you smiling
Are you me? or Am you?
soliloquy.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
