Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Mirror Mirror on the wall...

Why do I look and feel so different? How can I possible smile when I hurt so bad? Why is it so easy for me to smile and say all is well when my heart is hurting, actually hurting?

Mirror Mirror on the wall....

When will my chest deflate? When will my butterflies rest? When will I be able to answer people who ask with an all is well and not be lying?

Mirror Mirror on the wall...

Why did I do what made me feel this way? What can I do to change it? I can't change it, and that sucks. How long will this take? I want an answer, and yet, I know you cannot tell me. It is frustrating.

Mirror Mirror on the wall....

I love that I feel, I love that I care, I love that I want, I love that I desire, I love that I try, I love I and one day the way I look and the way I feel will match up once again.

  4. --and when these "mirrors" aren't on walls?

    --and what are possibilities for what "walls" can be?

    --covers of books are forms of walls, aren't they?

    1. As humans we put up our own walls, we put on covers so people have to guess how we feel. Covers on traditional books hide the hidden treasure from the average person, the only person who gets to enjoy the treasure is the one who takes the time to read the book, to feel it and to ponder it. Not very often do we take the time to ponder one another, let alone take the time to read each other. There are a lot of very deep stories wandering around that no one will get to share or discover.
