never trust a mirror

for mirror always lies

it makes you think that all you’re worth

can be seen from the outside


never trust a mirror

it only shows you what skin’s deep

you can’t see how your eyelids flutter

when you’re drifting off to sleep

it doesn’t show you that the world sees

when you’re only being you

or how your eyes just light up

when you’re loving what you do

it doesn’t capture when you’re smiling

where no-one else can see

and your reflection cannot tell you

everything you mean to me


never trust a mirror

for it only shows your skin

and if you think it dictates your worth

it’s time to look within
