Broken Mirrors / Espejos Rotos


My whole life
My only image
I have ever known
Came from broken mirrors
Cracked and shattered
And reality it never mattered
An existence built on errors

What seemed like clear reflections
Shining back at me
Just be what they want to see
Pay close attention to directions
Only way to maintain connections
And no one to disagree
After all
Who does not take
What is given so free

People begged
Just be yourself
Until I tried
Give them one small look inside
And that is enough
All they can abide
Conform again
Or be cast off

The only mirror
That deserves a view
Can be seen by closing you eyes
The difficult
But vital voyage
Looking deep inside
See that sweet and loving face
A reward for boundless courage
Find that lonely hiding place
Find that loving, hopeful you


Toda mi vida
Mi única imagen
Que he conocido
Vino de espejos rotos
Agrietada y rota
Y la realidad nunca importaba
Una existencia construida sobre errores

Lo que parecía un claro reflejo
Luminoso hacia mí
Sólo ser lo que quieren ver
Preste mucha atención a las instrucciones
La única forma de mantener conexiones
Y nadie en desacuerdo
después de todo
¿Quién no tomar
Lo que se da de manera gratuita

Gente rogaron
Sólo sé tú mismo
Hasta que traté
Darles una pequeña mirada al interior
Y eso es suficiente
Todo lo que pueden cumplir
conformarse nuevo
O ser desechado

El único espejo
Eso merece una vista
Se puede ver por que el cierre de los ojos
La difícil
Pero el viaje de vital importancia
Mirando en el interior de
Ver ese rostro dulce y amorosa
Una recompensa por su valentía sin límites
Encontrar ese escondite solitario
Encuentra que el amor, la esperanza de que

beautiful song, very touching. I find mirrors to be both interesting and disturbing. I wonder do we ever see what is really there...and mirrors are a great metaphor for life and our relationship with others...you really used this metaphor wonderfully in your poem.

Have a nice day!

As in some of your previous poems there is sadness and at the same time hope in this new poem of yours. Beautiful and touching. And these are really good images you chose to illustrate your poem.

It touches me deep down, I think those broken mirrors should not exist. But your inside mirror is your best friend.
Thanks for this beautiful poem, and thanks (I mean THANKS) for your lovely support :)
you're a great person Shamu, a big huge!
