Broken Mirrors

The reflections of a broken mirror
perceive more than the eyes
of strangers; or our own memories.

Each shard bears witness
to some facet of the truth
that assembles our identity;

Each reflection a new angle,
a different truth or revelation
to the one we strive to picture.

Perhaps our fear of breaking,
and our belief in bad luck;
Reflects our fear of truth:

Perhaps what we fear most
is seeing who we really are.
