dVerse Poets Quadrille. Redo🙃

I challenge you to take this familiar object and theme—go beyond cliché and write something unique (in 44 words). Mirror, mirrored, mirroring—use some form of the word mirror in your poem. Write a poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title. Your poem must use some form of the word mirror. Post your poem on your own blog, and link up using Mr. Linky below.


Who looks into the mirror
Seeing their true self—
Only the delighted child
A teenager finds flaws themselves
Their supposed friends’ influences critical
Adults choose not to see behind their face
Seeing only the outward beauty they crave
A reflection of their internal desire
