Prompt #28: Write a poem about yourself in which nothing is true.
As he stares at the mirror– Lotus (10th grade)
The mirror stares back at him
The reflection he sees
does not reflect what he feels.
Is he really the happy, smiling boy
the mirror makes him out to be?
Does the reflection reflect the truth?
Or does he want the facade to be true?
Sadness and anger build upon his eyes.
The glass mirror shatters
As he strikes to the reflection
of the boy, he does not consider himself.
