Ignominy

You cannot shape the mirror by hammering it

The desire to alter the reflection and reactions

Rattled by the truth, the pounding is in haste

Hate; the tendencies to abuse and overpower

Even one’s own reflection- the mirror is sacrificed

Horror! When the world remembers the abuse

Scars everywhere, yet there’s no remedy

It’s not hunger, but some deep-rooted anger

Subjugating life with terror; cries, “that mirror, mirror”

Faulty reflections are askew, but anger won’t bend

Adorning the world with scars and scary stories

The fault lies in the mirror for reflecting the horror

Hammering the insecurities like sharp nails

To hold the shattered world together
