The mirror has two sides

Reflections of mercury
Staring, staring
Do I really see this thing
Staring, staring

Wondering what others see
Wishing the eyes looking back at me
Weren’t always staring, staring

Self conscious and bereaved
Alone and engulfed
Sidelined by a negative existence

Why do I find you
Staring, staring
Judging me inch by inch
Sinning, sinning

Look at your own life
Look at your own faults
Look at the darkness of your plight

Comparing, comparing
judging, judging
staring, staring
