Where Words fail, Music speaks.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,

Who's most broken of them all?

Count each tear and trace the fall,

Hear my cries and mock the call;


Mirror, mirror, sharp and fine,

Morph the shapes and bend the line;

Blur my vision, tie the bind,

Laugh at pain and twist the mind;


Mirror, mirror, wear me thin:

Starve the soul and fill the bin;

Draw my fist back, throw it in-

End the torment, thoughts, and sin;


Mirror, mirror, shards of ice,

Reflect broken, swimming eyes;

Chains are broke; my face can rise:

I see through your sheet of lies;


Mirror, mirror, lock and key,

Shatter myths and set me free;

Mirror, mirror, don't you see?

You've no power over me.

The author's comments:

The mirror only has as much power over you as you give it; don't let it take control of your life.


You. Are. Beautiful.
