The Mirror That Never Breaks


here i am
feeling abandoned

those who face me
stab me at my back
and i am hit
badly but

then
i leave them
all
smiling,

i shall not tell
the whole truth
about how i feel

it's all mine
this world
i have conquered it
with a
wry smile

there is no use fighting now
or
arguing about who i am
i found a place
where i am at a complete
rest

there is a mirror there
that receives no light from anyone
it has that inner light
that speaks
that i am doing right

it is this mirror that
matters
it never breaks

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
