Mirror’s Many Ways

Consider the mirror’s many ways
reality fully in its sway
with impacts from good to bad
the spectrum ranges from glad to sad

first bending reality to the distress
of the viewers who damn the skin
the reminder of dysphoria
the opposite of gender euphoria

others see a compliment
the very best then dominant
that beauty in the beholder’s eye
reflection sharing a silvered reply

lastly the echo speaks of escape
possibilities beyond what’s displayed
dreams imagined with foresight
in the face of glassed delight.
