Mirror Mirror - Poem by Zanele Mavuso

Your eyes were not meant to see parts of your face
Your nose, cheeks, lips or chin.
The eye sees beauty from afar
beauty comes from within
Confidence is built from the inside
So you have to be confident of who you are
Even before you sees how you z looks.

Your eyes were meant for you to see my beauty
My eyes were meant for me to sees the beauty
you portray from the inside
For in Jah sight we all look beautiful
Jah nuh bless the day when mankind discovered a mirror
Your eyes mirror to nature
your eyes are natural mirrors of this world

however when mankind discovered a mirror
you saw yourself for the first time and didn't like what you saw
what you feel inside is not what see in the mirror
you think what you saw in me, would be how you look

Well I feel the same way and I saw the same thing
When I looked in the mirror, I thought that I would see the beauty I portrait inside
I thought I look how I feel

The mirror betrayed our vision
The mirror demolished my feelings
My confidence to feel beauty inside me has disappeared
