i believe that we as a society

are so terrified of mirrors

and use them in horror films

and as a scare tactic

because they are the realest reflections of us–

the good, the bad, and the ugly–

and there is nothing more truly frightening

than to see ourselves

exactly as we are.

  1. Mirrors are our reflection
    In them, we can see our soul
    What we see?
    We see light or a black hole?

    A mirror is like a portal
    we might find another dimension
    we are traveling toward ourselves
    mirrors teach us with introspection.
