Sometimes it’s too painful to delve beneath the surface
Some mirrors lay dormant or remain hidden forever
Some lives are coated with a superficial purpose
Some people actually consider this existence clever
Sometimes it’s much easier to look out than within
Some mirrors are shattered just lying in pieces
Some existences are glazed with lives paper thin
Some people rejoice of the thought when life ceases
Sometimes to live free takes a little bit of trying
Some mirrors can be fixed or replaced. I do hope you hear me.
It’s better than a glazed existence which is the same as slowly dying
Please stare into yourself until your complexion returns clearly.
Look into your eyes
Hold yourself there
See through your guise
Become more aware
This is who you really are, share this existence and you’ll be amazed
You’ll understand that your life, your reflection and your entire existence wasn’t meant to be lived……………….glazed.
