Mirror, Mirror - Poem by Linda Racaniello
Mirror, mirror, tell me why
The reason in which my heart can't comply.
What is it missing; where is it found?
Truth in which my emotions are bound.
Mirror, mirror, vanish the past.
These fears I have: why do they last?
The abuse, it haunts me; it won’t fade away.
Suffering that dwindles in my heart everyday.
Mirror, mirror, watch the tears fall
Into this empty existence I crawl.
Searching for my ray of light to clear my clouds away,
I close my eyes, and hold my breath, and then begin to pray:
“Mirror, mirror, I beg to be free;
Help me to heal, help me to see.
Banish my storm clouds, banish my pain,
Help to realize, that I am not insane.
Mirror, mirror, as you fall to the floor,
Breaking in pieces, I beg you once more:
That as your life ends, mine will begin,
Searching for lost emotions that have been hidden within.
Mirror, mirror, I bid you goodbye.
A weight has been lifted, I can no longer cry.
Sitting in the middle of sharp shards of glass,
I realize I have just said goodbye to my past.
Mirror, mirror, now I must go
To search the world and bask in its glow.
As I clean up the pieces that once used to be,
I silently thank you for setting me free.
