Mirrors Don't Lie


As I watch my self in the mirror
I am fully aware
Of the cool blank eyes
That at me stare
For these eyes don’t cry
But they very well know
Mirrors don’t lie

As I watch in horror
My face labeled with every sin
I cry in despair
As the realization sinks in
I know that my soul has now given in
But the fact my heart denies
That mirrors don’t tell lies

How can every sin
Find a way in my soul
How can every day
Turn as black as coal
I find the answers
As I look at me
My eyes defy
But my heart knows the reality
That even if I defy
Who can say mirrors lie?

Then I knew that it’s too late
I walk in tunnel
accepting fate
I know the light has gone out
As I have gone astray
And now looking in the mirror
I see the scars
The mask of falsehood
Is behind bars
I now have a battered soul
Which still defies
And says
Mirrors do please tell lies

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
