What you will not forgive in others
a mirror for what you cannot forgive
Hold the mirror before your face
cracked, distorted by times
of perceived failure, harsh voices.
and look some more,
until you see the darkness of yourself.
Then step through,
step through the reflection to the other,
the other side where
you are him
you are her
you are they
you are no different.
In the mirror two eyes plead
