POEM 1.1: Mirrors

Mirrors 

Farzaneh Pourmazaheri

 

Shall we break the mirrors

Which reflect our features

And deliver the same looks

That we send like salty tears

 

They are professional painters

who depict our faces

They can even count

All the lines and traces

 

They tell us what we are

Why we live and why we die

They are large albums

Of many men near or far

 

Maybe happy maybe sad

Maybe calm or maybe mad

These are what we can see

In that large solid pad

 

They teach us good manners

How to burn jealousy

What we need is humbleness

To conquer selfishness

 

Mirrors are so honest.

Often don’t show the best

So live as what you are

But not in the devil’s nest
