What if mirrors could tell the stories of what they’ve seen?
Would they tell us to change toothpaste? Or that it’s long past time to change that toothbrush head?
Would they tell us that our hair looks fine to the left or right and that that one piece will just never sit right?
Would they tell us that yes we HAVE had too much to drink? And scream that we CANNOT drive?
Would they tell us that even though we don’t recognize ourselves that they do?
Would they call us out for not being able to look ourselves in the eyes?
Would the tell of the self hatred screamed at them?
Would they tell us that they’ve seen us cry, and we deserve better than we accept for ourselves?
Would they tell us that the mountains we have been carrying were only meant to be climbed?
If mirrors could talk would they tell stories of the years gone by? Would they tell us about how we should be appreciative of those wrinkles, scars, and bags?
Would they tell us that “The mirror is not you. The mirror is you looking at yourself”?
