Mirror by Neha Goyal, Teacher, Sacred Heart Convent Sr. Sec. School, Khanna (Distt. Ludhiana), Punjab


Mirror


Spending hours infront of thee
To refashion the natural order ,
Spending hours infront of thee
To refashion the natural order,
Anxious about the reflection of the ephemeral,
Turning every stone to be presentable,
  
Unnerved by a glance at the divine version of thee inside 
Horrified even at the thought of the ugly reflection
Unable to veil it with the artificial correction
  
But can not do without glancing at it 
For to be presentable to ultimate source of reflection,
I look for the cleansing of the dark soul,
I need to bleach it with confession n admission,
I need to nourish it with acceptance and forgiveness
After cleansing, bleaching and nourishing the dark soul 
I can feel presentable to the whole...
