The Magic Mirror

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Who’s the fairest fair of all?
Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Who’s the smartest head of all?
Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Who’s that girl standing tall?
Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Who's to hold me when I fall?
Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Why are you not answering my call?


Oh mirror ...
The lines and the scars you do not hide
My scattered thoughts you would not guide

Me myself and I; the gap so wide
Oh mirror; you make me look inside

You show me a girl against the tide
By the rules she would not abide

Within your frame, a caged spirit am I?
By your name, what voice have I?

Oh mirror … can you hear me?
My mirror is deceiving me!

I will show you my smile ... will you let me?
A star in my eyes ... will you get me?

I will show you a happy face ... please let me
A shelter from myself ... please get me

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Do not show me her face;
I have killed her and left no trace.

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
She shall never stutter;
With a new voice, words she will utter.

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Her fear you shall never show;
Fearless she is to know.

Mirror ... mirror on the wall,
Do not point at her scars;
It hurts ... not her scars.

Oh mirror ...
There is no Santa but tell her not
Dreams are dreams but wake her not

She will give in ... tell her not to
She will give up ... tell her not to

Cruel mirror ...
Why show me a figure so broken?
Why tell me words unspoken?

My mirror ...
Every time I at look you
I miss a line in her face.

Every time I come to you
A part of her I erase.

Every time I need you
I abandon her grace.

So my mirror ..
Where is the little fat girl that you used to show me?
Where are the frightened eyes that used to look at me?

Is she still hiding her smile with her hand?
Is she still looking for a magic wand?

You loved her not
You loved me a lot

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
What have I done?
Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Where has she gone?

Mirror … mirror on the wall,
Which way do I run?

Yes mirror ...
How I wish I could give you my back
and never look at you again.

How I wish I could leave you on a rack
and never fall for your tricks again.

Oh mirror ... Why can’t you lie?
Why don’t you tell me that I am the fairest fair of all?
Why don’t you tell me that I am the smartest head of all?
Why don’t you let me stand proud and tall?
Will you at least be there when I fall?
Oh … Mirror … mirror on the wall …
Why are you not answering my call?

marwa, why i feel that this mirror is your conscience and your inner brain. u know me too has same feeling when i see myself in mirror but my mirror is inside my head why we change our look and our thoughts why we can't live as we are and as 50cent in ad. says " i'm what i'm ". yes we change ourself but is it make us happy, this is the question u ask at the end of your poem. yes the mirror can't lie and tell us that we have this fake happiness. u know my mirror always be with me when i walk alone . we always need to have this cruel mirror to tell us with our truth. this truth we try hardly to hide it from every one even we try to hide it form ourself. nice poem ya marwa :)

I knew you would like that verse trapped soul:)

Some people fall in love with their reflection and others avoid it ... You just need to look into your mirror at the right time:)
