They say that mirrors never lie,
But tell the truth we dare not see.
Well I stared into the empty depths,
And saw a face look back at me.
It's brow was racked with troubled thoughts,
The eyes were dark and tired.
An empty husk devoid of hope,
A lost and lonely child.
I tried to reach beyond the glass,
To give that face a sign,
Then all at once I saw the truth,
That wretched face was mine.
"Don't see what I do not want to see,
you don't hear what I don't say.
Won't be what I don't want to be,
I continue in my way."
