Short Poems

1. Reflections

Oh, mirror on the wall,
Who is it that I see?
A reflection of myself,
Staring back at me.

The lines upon my face,
The colors in my eyes,
The person I have become,
It’s all here in plain sight.

Oh, mirror on the wall,
Thank you for showing me,
The beauty that I hold,
As I face each day with glee.

2. The Magic Mirror

In a land far away,
Where magic still exists,
There’s a mirror that reflects,
More than just twists and turns.

It shows the truest of selves,
Not just what’s on the surface,
And those who look inside,
Find a well of inner purpose.

With eyes that sparkle bright,
And a heart that beats with love,
The mirror shows us all,
What we’re capable of.

3. Broken Reflections

Shattered pieces on the ground,
A mirror broken and unbound,
A million shards that once reflected,
Now lay scattered and disconnected.

But even in its state of chaos,
The mirror still holds a purpose,
For in each broken piece we see,
A new fragment of possibility.

So let us gather all the shards,
And piece together a new whole,
A reflection that is whole and true,
And fills our hearts and minds with hope.

4. Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Not the one with perfect skin,
Or the one with the greatest win.

But the one with heart and soul,
Who knows and loves and is whole,
With kindness as her guiding light,
And courage to fight the fight.

So mirror, mirror, show the way,
To see the beauty in ourselves each day,
And to live with grace and love,
Like a peaceful, gentle dove.

Medium Poems

Reflection of the Soul
In your reflection, who do you see?
Is it a stranger or is it just you and me?
The mirror may show what’s on the outside,
But inside, there’s a soul that we can’t hide.

The lines on your face and the color of your eyes,
May change with age and every surprise,
But the essence of who you are deep down,
Is the same that you’ll always carry around.

Look beyond the surface, past the layers of skin,
To find the beauty that lies within.
Embrace your flaws, celebrate your strengths,
And your reflection will show you the truest form you could ever comprehend.

For a mirror may distort and even deceive,
But the soul it reflects will always believe,
That what’s inside matters more than any reflection,
For that is the true essence of your creation.

The Vain Reflection
Oh, mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Do you see my beauty so rare,
Or am I just a fleeting flare?

I gaze at you with great intent,
Hoping to find an image I could present,
To the world that I am so proud,
But inside, I feel a turbulence loud.

For the more I look, the less I’m sure,
If my reflection has a hidden allure.
I scrutinize every line and every curve,
Hoping to find what I feel I deserve.

But, alas, the mirror never lies,
It shows the truth, no matter the tries.
And I have come to realize,
That beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes.

So, dear mirror, please do not deceive,
For the beauty that I need,
Lies not on the surface, but deep within me,
And it’s something only I could truly see.

Long Poems

Reflections of Myself

Oh, how faithfully the mirror reflects,
A constant reminder of all our defects.
The blemishes, wrinkles, and lines we see,
The imperfections that make us feel less than free.

But the mirror shows more than just our flaws,
It also reveals the beauty within our cause.
The sparkling eyes that show our joy,
The smile that lights up like a buoy.

And yet, we often focus on the negative,
The dimness of reflection that’s restrictive.
We forget to see that we are whole,
And our flaws are what make us whole.

For who would we be without our scars,
The lessons learned from life’s bazaars.
Each mark a story we can tell,
A testament to how we fell.

So let us cherish the mirror’s sight,
And embrace our image with true delight.
For it is through this looking glass we see,
Reflections of our true destiny.


In the darkness of a room,
Where secrets hide and shadows loom,
A mirror stands there, tall and proud,
Reflecting all that’s said aloud.

It captures every angle, every square inch,
And holds it tight, without a flinch.
It shows the world your every flaw,
But also all the beauty you saw.

When you look in it, what do you see?
Do you see the person you want to be?
Or do you see the one you despise,
The one who wears a mask of lies?

The mirror holds you, holds your fate,
And everything that you create.
It shows you what you choose to see,
And who you are, inevitably.

It reflects the pain, the hurt, the sorrow,
The joy, the love, the hope of tomorrow.
It’s a window into who you are,
And what you dream of, near or far.

It sees the moments you keep hidden,
The ones that leave you feeling ridden,
It shows you your fears, your doubts, your woes,
And the times you thought you’d never know.

The mirror reflects the journey of life,
And all the twists and turns that come with strife.
It reminds you that you’re not alone,
That you’re human, and you will grow.

So when you stand in front of the glass,
Take a moment to let the time pass,
Look deep within and find your truth,
And remember, the mirror is a reflection of you.
