broken mirror

A heart is like a broken mirror
It's better to leave it broken than
to hurt yourself trying to pick up
the broken pieces.

    At some point its true, yet you will someday have to go through the pain

    Dear Alicia,

    Good day to you and nice poetry!

    Yesterday, while jogging, I started creating a poem involving a conversation with my mirror-the mirror being omniscient, that is, which caused me to feel ill at ease. I saw your poem 'broken mirror' and found it haunting and contemplative for myself.
