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.
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?
