The Mirror Poem by Mubeen Sadhika


The other image
The mind prefers to have
The faithful reflection
The face forgets to keep
The lie detector
The memory slips to avoid
The self trap
The icon replicates to double
The duplicate copy
The mask pretends to imitate
The identity cage
The role shuns to hold
The innumerable metaphors
To confine the truth.
