In between sniffing and tissues

Never trust a mirror,

For a mirror always lies.

It makes you think that all you’re worth,

Can be seen from the outside. 

Never trust a mirror,

It only shows what’s skin deep. 

You can’t see how your eyelids flutter,

When you’re drifting off to sleep. 

It doesn’t show you what the world sees. 

When you’re only being you,

Or how you’re eyes just light up

When you’re loving what you do. 

It doesn’t capture when you’re smiling,

Where no-one else can see. 

And your reflections cannot tell you,

Everything you mean to me. 

Never trust a mirror,

For it only shows your skin. 

And if you think it dictates your worth,

It’s time you looked within.
