My mirror must
just be mistaken.

It’s flimsy glass full of errors
and deformations…
Innocently creating ripples
and alterations.

It just has to be the reason why
that the beautiful girl you see…

Is nowhere close to the same girl

that’s appearing only to me.

  1. Wow. I reread this one because it’s so true, how often do we look into the mirror and only see imperfections? But in fact, we’re actually beautiful because of our flaws. Love it Hal ❤

  2. Life’s wisdom number 1) Cameras are like crows— they are all liars!!! Never trust a camera.

    A human eye/brain combination can adjust for different lighting conditions and generally see a person’s face as the same each time, plus see it in 3D. A camera is just fucked!

    Life’s wisdom number 2) Limit opportunities to see your own reflection 😜.

    Life’s wisdom number 3) We are all simultaneously butt-ugly and beautiful 😉.
