Mirrors

staring in the broken glass
the cracks and rough surface
staring back not cutting any slack
representing life and everyone around
the mirror still works And captures the background
sees your face and shows you off
sees you twitch sees you cough
but one thing it can’t see is the inside.
you can see it’s cracks but it just stares back.
it shows your surface but not your furnace
it doesn’t show what keeps you warm
it only shows the clothes you’ve worn.
a mirror shows your styles
but it fails to show what matters most…your trials.
