Mirror, Mirror


Mirror, Mirror
on the wall
who's the fairest
of them all...

Not you, it cries
Nose too big
Breasts too small
Lips too thin
Hips too wide
you are completely
flawed

I turn off the television...

I'm not sure when TV became our guage our mirror for defining who we are, both physically and mentally!

You highlight a sad truth with this probing piece!
