Broken Mirror - Poem by Elizabeth Ungemach

I never saw the crack of dawn

I never heard a single song

I never fought a single fight

I never slept a single night

I never felt another hand

Or laid upon the sun-warmed sand

I never cried a single tear

Of sorrow, sadness, joy, or fear

I never really made it here

Though reasons may seem quite unclear

For when the start of a new life grew near

I came upon a broken mirror
