Shattering the Mirror


I kicked the mirror with my boot,
Then I finally saw how different I looked.
I loved looking at me.


So I kicked the mirror again,
I looked ever more different,
Just the way I wanted to look.


This time, I kicked the mirror,
Till it made sounds of sharp shattering.
I looked gorgeous now in front of this mirror.P


I wanted to be shattered again!
Post shattering, I screamed hooray,
For my shattered look became me and I smiled.


The reason I shattererd this mirror,
Was that this mirror was my own self-image,
This mirror showed me bad,
So the self-improvement,
Was a happy thing not sad.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
