Oh Mirror I stand in front of thee,
And peer inside so deep indeed.
Yet the image that I do see,
Lacks the ability to recognize me.
For I am not just what is seen,
Because that is but only half of me.
For who I am - I am from within,
No Mirror can see that my friend.
So never judge me with your eyes,
Cause who I am - I am inside.
For it's my body and my soul,
That reflects my image as a whole.
So Mirror; Mirror on that there wall,
You really don't know me at all.
For who I am - I am from within,
And you can't see that my friend.

    Best mirror piece I ever read. Usually the phrase and/or idea of the mirror on the wall is often used in such a cliched way. But in your poem I found a new dimension, a new meaning, and an amazing piece that I am so happy to add to my favorites list.

    It reads like a haunted song, those little rhymes you have are spot on.
