  • You are a mirror
    but you distort me
    I can't trust
    the image
    you see
    is really me

    You reflect me
    and refract me
    pull me up
    squish me down
    like a mirror
    in a fun house

    Sometimes I
    grow bigger
    than I really am

    Sometimes I
    get smaller
    and smaller

    Everywhere I turn
    there I am
    The same is true
    for you

    Instead of
    reflecting on me
    Stand in front
    of the mirror
    and try to look
    at yourself
