Mirror, Mirror In The Hall - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Mirror, mirror in the hall
Tell me I am as pretty as a doll

As you stand there by the wall
Why are you truthful to us all?

How about sweet white lies?
When I look at you and sigh
Or is vanity going to be my downfall

In you all I always see is my real image
Imprisoned in your crystal transparent cage
When will you set me free?
When will you let me be?
This is now becoming my daily outrage

Mirror, mirror in the hall
Why do you pretend?
Not to be my best friend?
How about sweet white lies?
Or a positive reply
When I ask you that simple question
Who is the prettiest of them all?
