“Mirror, mirror on the wall, show me grim realities of them all?” Asked a twenty year old, in anticipation of a traditional reply. However the mirror had much more to convey, with total internal reflection bringing enlightenment.
The mirror responded in a satire:
The walls of the hospital had heard more prayers than the walls of the churches!
Now I know, nobody remembers God in good times, forcing him to send perils into lives.
The courts of law had witnessed more fights than the battle fields or borders!
Now I know, houses never become homes, cursing relationships with violence.
The airports of city had seen more kisses than the bedroom of newly weds!
Now I know, distances bring us closer, realising that happiness is staying together.
The mirror had reflected more truth than the palm predictors of destiny!
Now I know, I must be honest to myself, flowing freely like a river.
