Mirror

Where is your humanity?
You sold it for your vanity
and your need to be above.
Why so jealous?
Why so zealous?
To say you love Jesus
but you have no love?
What is that you gain
by saying I complain?
Do you not see your reflection vain?
not realizing you are doing the same?
Does it make you feel better to shame?
To take a person who is already low
befriend them first and then lay a blow
that came from the snow,
while we live in Louisiana?
If you are not a friend, please don’t begin
by saying that you are
my cuts run deep, anger always fresh
and you have no idea of my scars…
and I have no idea of yours, either
but I was never here to shame you, either.
…but maybe I was
Maybe I’m your Mirror.
