The mirror:
Sitting, waiting for someone to come by,
so it can place its spell
on that unsuspecting maiden of a girl.
She looks at her reflection,
and the mirror takes control.

This thin piece of glass ahs no heart,
teaching that beauty is the only part.
Showing the flaws - even the little ones,
and watching the girl go and starve.

The author's comments:
This is a look at the common problem of girls with eating disorders, but I decided to look at this a different way. I blamed the mirror, which I believe is the reason for so many eating disorders, but nobody ever really thinks about it that way.
