Mirrors

Author: Jin Wang Editor: Isabella

We all need to try a little harder

As a

Collective Whole

To get the feeling across

The feeling of Compassion

With Humility, Dignity and Grace

A true sense of 

Meaning and Purpose

That is unforeseen

Yet completely gifted

To understand the unspoken hurt 

And the hard-fought struggle

Of Hopeless Souls

Adrift

To find Peace and Joy 

In the quiet expression

The selfless offering

That I sometimes find in a poem’s 

Heartfelt awakened words

I do not write poetry

I write 

Mirrors

Which are held up

To curious faces

Who can read

In between the lines

Looking for their

Own reflections

But too often

See nothing but 

Blame, Greed, Hate

And Fear

They

Need to 

S T O P

And look a little harder

In the mirror

To see the Truth

Blinded by the Lies of

Dark Empty Eyes
