What? Said the Mirror

July 3, 2008
By Kamerin Chambers, Chicago, IL

No!
A thousand times I have said.
No blemishes,
your makeup is not smeared,
only when your tears smudge your appearance.
Yes!
I say
You are BEAUTIFUL!
You feel as if my reflections are lies.
But, it's your denial not mines.
So I say,
No!
A thousand times I have said,
No blemishes on the outside...
Only reflections within.
