Poem: Mirrored

In the mirror, reflected,
see that face you know, or think you know.

Study carefully.
Mark each line, laughter or wrinkle-grown.
Note the colour of eyes, lips and hair.

Take into account that the image you see is not the one that others know.
You see a reflection of yourself,
reversed, distorted, looking only from your side;
never seeing the face that you present to the world.

Then, look again.
