Mirror Mirror x 2

(picture from internet- picasso’s Girl In The Mirror)
I simply love this masterpiece!!!

Mirror mirror
Who am I
A dreamer
A schemer
do not lie

 

Mirror mirror
Am I lovely
Am I ugly
Mirror inside
Do not lie

 

Mirror mirror
are you spy
x-ray vision
inner division
sift swift

 
mirror mirror
do not dither
tell me good
tell me true
or  rue

mirror mirror
give me stark
give naked
 barebone
soul tattooed

 
mirror mirror
crack crack
smithereens
heel powdered
I like not seen!

 

Mirror mirror
made no promises
Your projection
My rejection
Delusion scores

 

***   ****   ****

 

Mirror Mirror

 

Walking with soul in my palms
Promising to keep it from harm
I’ve bitten off more than I can chew
Stepping gingerly I affirm do not rue

Weeding out those habits that are questionable
But elevating in pseudo society impressionable
At end of day it is my gaze that I have to face
Will I be able to see self in mirror sans faze

It is easy to tread the path well trodden delineated
To find hidden beauty need to take path uncharted
Easy going remain in known confines like well frog
Adventurers find breathtaking views, faces all agog

To err is easy and makes for a comfortable life
Turning blind eye to rising qualms is the only
fife
Sleeping deep, blemishes replete, are thick skinned
Heeding to rising murmurs is not for faint hearted

Walking with the soul in my palms
Promising to keep it from any harm
I’ve bitten off more than I can chew
Stepping gingerly I affirm do not rue

    Reflective as the Picasso expresses. What we ‘see’ in the mirror is merely a reflection of what we ‘feel’ , for the truth is inside our soul, and it is not delusional. Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder…it is beholding to Self.
    Love thy self and the world will love you back. Self-Image is painted on us by others. Clear the canvas and paint ‘your’ picture with your own colors of paint.

  2. I liked this one! Kind of abstract but has substance. ‘soul tattooed’ was really nice. I liked those terms.
