Reflect

by Sanjida Shaheed

Looking into the mirror,
Looking at you,
Who are you looking at?
It is just
A reflection!
It has no warmth,
No heartbeat,
No breath,
No soul,
No heart,
No mind.

Yet it fools you
With false hopes.
Cheated by delusions
You lean on lies
That masquerade
As truth!

There you are!
Rehearsing roles
For a meaningless play!!

“Mirror, mirror,
Tell me truly,
Who is…”
STOP
Right there!

The mirror
Does not know you!!!

Look beyond
The reflection.
Look inside!
Meet yourself
One-to-one,
Face-to-face,
Heart-to-heart!

Truth resides
In your OWN heart.
