31DWC : Day 16

Prompt: The mirror shows that which you cannot see.


When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
Is it just your reflection?
No.

When you look in the mirror, you see so much more.
It’s not just your reflection
It’s who and what you are.
The qualities, the traits that make up you.

And sometimes, we don’t see the most uplifting of things about ourselves.
You look and you see a freak
Someone who’s not good looking
Who’s too skinny, or fat
Someone who has bags under their eyes
Or their chest is too small or big

Sometimes though, this is not the reflection we’re looking at
But rather the things that we see are what we believe
Not what is

The mirror shows that which you cannot see.
Sometimes mirrors aren’t purely just a reflective piece of glass
Sometimes, they’re people, in our lives
People that bring out something about us
An aspect or a trait or a problem.

They are there to show you what you’re not seeing.
These mirrors are what teach us the lessons.

They show us what we cannot see for ourselves.
