Pieter Engelbrecht


Mirror


I speak to myself in the mirror
The mirror speaks to me alone
is that realy you mirror, or is it just me alone

I speak a thousand words for you to hear
but no response only a tear.
A tear that's hollow and dry.
What does this mirror know about feelings
about dreams
about humanity

Is this reflection me
Is this the person I've become
Am I a product, created by this mirror
Or is this mirror created by me

I speak to myself in the mirror
The mirror speaks to me alone
is that realy you mirror, or is it just me alone
