Pity – Mag 11o


She was not a dystopian Alice,
Opposite in almost every way,
Save the negative attitude and outlook,
And this was not the looking glass,
This mirror reflected her inner reflections back to her,
Compounding them,
Magnifying them
For further consideration
Opening her mind
Yet stunting her growth,
For her mind was not open,
The truth,
Plain to see,
As obvious as the nose on her face,
But she was not in the mood,
She was not and would not be backed into a corner,
By any consideration that was contrary to her thoughts,
Her thoughts and nothing more,
No regard for others or the world around her,
Did not have the time or inclination
To study her past transgressions
As they bothered her not,
In touch with the three faces she presents,
All fake, empty and ever changing,
The irony of it all
She could have looked out the window and
Discovered more in one breath,
Than in a lifetime staring at the mirror,
With the nose(s) on her face,
Waiting for answers that will
Never come,
