she as afraid
of what the mirror might reflect,
though, the whole world saw
a perfect human,
she saw only her imperfections
smiling back at her!
the shattered pieces of mirror
shone back a thousand imperfect reflections of her,
broken was the way only she saw herself,
not the world
if only she realized that!

This hits hard. How we are so hard on ourselves! Beautifully expressed.
Oh that’s very unfortunate. Beautifully written!
