The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Beth Adair

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Open your heart and tell me all
All of the stories you have heard
Every emotion, action, or word

Every fantasy, thought, or heartbreak
Every happiness, sadness, or heartache
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Catch me as I slowly fall

Into the universe opposite me
Into a world I've never seen
Into a world with no dark or light
Into a world with no depth or height

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Help me respond to my call
Teach me the rituals, traditions and ways
Teach me how and what to say

Help me to love and laugh and learn
Help soothe my soul when it burns
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Are you listening to me at all?
